This light box is wireless, using battery-powered LEDs purchased at the Dollar Store (making this a very affordable solution as well). In playing with the lighting, I discovered that placing a white foam board at an angle under the plexiglass gave me the most light "bounce," as it reflected the LEDs upwards. This angled board in turn created a "secret compartment" for storing paper, pens, etc.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
Brilliant white foam core or cardboard
Translucent white Plexiglas to fit top of drawer
Several touch-operated LED lights from the Dollar Store
AAA batteries (3 per LED light)
1" wood screws (2 per LED light)
Small rare earth magnet
Ferrous metal piece (about 1/2" x 1")
Step 1: Bank of Lights
All I have to do when the batteries wear out is pull them out and replace them.
The video in the intro shows how I did the above.
