Hello all

I just got an old Nikon barrel lens that throws an 18" circle and am hoping to build a 15x15" camera using it. I have an idea of how to build the film holder for it but am unsure of the best approach for the actual body and bellows (which I have no money to buy and will have to shimmy together). Does anyone have any suggestions on the basic design and or any online plans for such a camera? I'm hoping to get it built in the next two weeks as I'm enrolled in a semester of palladium printing... (exciting!)
