wooden press used to build a rounded photo booth model

It took one year to reconstruct this photobooth by hand. It’s a 1960‘s model that has otherwise disappeared.

The wooden exteriors were created with a custom built press in our workshop.

Once the booth was assembled and veneered, we transferred the restored photo development mechanism to it, so it can give you the same silver nitrate prints as back in the day.
