After making my first instructable, Turn Your 12V DC or 85-265V AC Fluorescent Light To LED, I dressed up the cheap/generic fluorescent fixture with a bamboo light box using L-brackets.  My RV has 4 of these fixtures and I only had enough scrap bamboo to do the one box.  Not wanting to spend $180 on another sheet of bamboo plywood, I decided to find an alternative.  I also wanted to try out my new toy, a Kreg Pocket Hole Jig.
