if you looked at my other tutorial you will see it already has 7 or so steps so i figured that I should continue this project to another instructable. the below picture isn't the best but read on.

Step 1: Alternative Lighting

if you need info on how to build the "wooden box" read up on my other post. when me and my father were at lowes I picked up a halogen spot light, it was $4 and looked cool so we got it (he also needed to spend $50 to receive full benefit on one of his coupons) so as soon as we got home I unpackaged it and setup the plug, and turned it on the bulb is only 20w so I was skeptical about using it on this project but after I turned the lights off it looked a lot better (duh) so i figured it beats a $10 florescent light setup
Great idea! I've got a few of them laying around doing nothing and I'm trying to put together a basement arcade, I think that's what I'll do with them.
As I stated in your other Instructable, you should use something other than hot glue to secure a light, especially if your worried about heat.
Just one little light was enough to back lit the entire board?
as you can see in the end result picture there is HUGE difference between the middle and the ends but yes in the end picture that is only one bulb / light
