A client saw the camera photo frame that i had done before:

and she asked me to make one for her photographer boss, who is a big businessman here in Honduras. so i said to myself, myself, that little camera won’t do!, and started thinking in a way to do a more realistic one, he uses Nikon, so i got some diagrams from this internet thing and went from there.

it still missing some buttons and dials, but for space i did not put them. the shutter release does click by the way, i used one of those pen springs and a little tinkering i was able to press it like a normal button.

its made from Cedar, not the normal one because it was a pain to sand it, the more sand we put on it, the rougher it gets, but finally we were able to make it nice and smooth.

thanks for reading!

Really cool and unique. I’m sure the new owner will be glad to have it. Great detail.
