Building a Large Format Camera with Plywood

Often we are in awe with people who like to take their photography experience a little bit more beyond and yonder. It's fascinating to witness such passion for the art as highly-motivated photographers take their craft seriously.

Such is photographer Daniel Schneider, who happens to own a Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machine. He has already built several large format cameras for himself, but never yet with a CNC machine and plywood -- such tool makes it an ideal for the analogue camera to be lightweight, affordable and of course, beautiful.

Here's a video of how his machine made the parts of the camera for his wet plate photography.
