This is version one of our traveling darkbox design from CAD to finished. It was really my first attempt at CNC cutting pieces and attaching them together.
It’s amazing looking at something in CAD and then comparing with the finished product. I learned a lot about fastening and finishing wood. Joinery strength, glues, etc.. One of the attached photos is of the darkbox in use at the Carroll County Farm Museum First Call Reenactment and Living History event. Version two which is already being built has a larger safelight window in the back and a custom fitted silver bath that sticks out of the back for extra room while in the box.
For more details on the project (which is heavy on the photography how and why’s of the project) a lengthier version can be found here: http://johnmilleker.com/weblog/blog/2013/05/17/darkbox-construction-and-usage
