Ah, you want to use the LCD backlight as a light source for a light table?  Cool idea!

If you can't find instructions on the net (search for LCD backlight removal or something similar) then just go nuts with a screwdriver and see if you can separate the LCD from the backlight.  Hopefully, they are separate pieces.  And be careful, because they're fragile.

Assuming you mean g4 Macbook, take out the innards and plug up the key holes and usb outlets and things, and add a whole array of LED's pointing upwards from the bottom section, and replace the screen with a nice smoky glass or plastic.
