Making a new camera

I have some extra parts laying around so I have decided to make a Large format (4x5) superwide point and shoot camera. I picked up some wood from the Home Depot, a 7.25" x 36"x .5" board of Poplar. I cut the board into 5 pieces, 7 inches by 7.25 inches. Next I had to make a jig in the sheet of plywood so I could route out the back board to accept the connecting frame.

After the in-letting was done, I cut out the center of the board.

Tomorrow I will cut out the center of the middle 3 boards and then glue them all together. The front board will of course hold the lens. I also have to figure out how to attach the connecting frame to the wood so it doesn't fall off.

Stay tuned....more to come.
