Since The Shop's Dirty..

Since the shop is already a mess from the camera build.. might as well get back to work finishing the two parlor size acoustics. One mahogany with cedar top and mahogany neck (above), the other still open to ideas. Get your orders in.

The Fialkoff FFL Is Done!

Here are some images of the finished Fixed Focal Length camera. The front with it's 90mm f6.8 Schneider, the back, dressed in a 6x8cm kit, and the same dressed in a 4x5 inch kit. Images from the camera to follow. Thanks to Maurice Fialkoff for the Walnut and his engineering skills.
