Built camera years ago as a school project. Tripod was added years later. Consists mostly of cherry and walnut, with a touch of ebony detailing. Rear door swivels on wooden hinge with cabinet space inside. Modeled after my old Pentax ME Super, a great camera once upon a time.

Lar this is done in the style of Livio De Marchi of Venice.

I can just imagine geologist coming across this in a dig some time in the distant future and being totally confused about how the technology worked. LOL

Very nicely done. Welcome to LJ’s.

Lar you are truly a craftsman. What is your background? Have you had formal training?

Back up on the opening page. The hinge detail is incredible, heck, all of the workmanship is outstanding.
