I had some poplar left over from a cabinet project that a family member did in my shop, so I built this sweet little home for some of my vintage cameras a few years ago. Finished with Danish Oil.

Nice stack of cameras. I recognize the Argus C3, also known as a “brick” I think nearly everyone owned one at some time. What are the rest of them?

Did you enclose them in the shelf to keep the dust off instead of using open shelving??

Great joinery and a well executed project.

CO_Goose the top one is the Sears 10B and the bottom is the Kodak Bantam RF.

GrumpyMike no they’re not enclosed – I have a vague plan in my head for adding a glass panel door to this, once I get through a few other projects.

Thanks for the kind words everyone!
