Jim Fitzgerald has completed a Walnut Tripod and Camera with an antique appearance. He is using Walnut purchased from us here at Kencraft. He uses hand tools in the work he does. The film size is 8 x 20 and the camera weighs about 14 pounds. The Camera and Tripod have been finished with Watco Danish Oil. Jim has dry sanded the pieces to 220 then switched to wet sanding with diamond pads to 800. Paste wax was used for the final coat. This project took approximately a year and a half to complete. The camera does work and has been tested.
Thank you Jim, for sharing your beautiful work with us! We look forward to the pictures of your 11 x 14 Camera too!
Keep checking back for updated pictures on his progress!
