Episode 60: How I Built An 11x14 View Camera From Scratch

Thank you for making this information available to the world and of course to me.
I am stuck on making the rear standard.
In particular how to be sure the ground glass plane and the film plane are the same.
Am I correct to say they "must" be the same?
Not even one mm off.

Can you offer any help?

I have the lens mounted to the front standard and bellows.
Just need the rear standard built.

Thank you
