I'll go look at urban ore for counter material tomorrow. Even if I find
something I'm not sure if I'll be able to get it though. I'm pretty
broke after a few months unemployed and a trip to europe. I'll get my
first paycheck from the new job soon and be able to put more money into
the darkroom, although depending on cost I may see if anyone else is
able to throw something in for the counter. I'll send something out to
the list if I find promising materials. I'll keep up the search for a
fan and duct work as well.
