I needed a light box for tracing airfoils from kites (among other things).I had some old fluorescent lights and of all things a recessed skylight box ...
and associated ballast, rip the things apart to get the pieces you need.
here i am wiring it up and placing it in box to see if there is going to be enough light to illuminate my pages and kites.
must test to make sure it will do what i want.
for more reflection. i had some old white laminex covered wood which seems perfect.
for the on off switches. i'm adding 3 switches in case i need to put more lights in later.
i actually added a second fluorescent. as you can see it is not much good. you'll be able to figure out how to make more if you need em.
i had these scraps of round timber left over from another project. simply woodscrewed into bottom.
i had some old framing timber with a recessed edge perfect for holding the plastic in place.
well, does it work?
