Lightbox



This is a home-made light box I just completed.
My materials list:
1 silly box from Ikea
Balsa wood rod, enough to go around the inside of the box
3 Compact Fluorescent light bulbs
3 sockets
1 light switch
1 plug
Wire
10 tiny screws and 8 teeny nails
1 custom cut piece of semi-transparent, white 1/4" plexiglass

Each light bulb has three holes drilled underneath it for ventilation and is held in place with a bit of sticky-backed velcro. The plexiglass rests on the balsa ledge and can be removed to change the bulbs or wiring. It diffuses the light quite evenly.
