Sketch Board




About: Creative saxophone player always looking for good ideas. Turns bullets into pens and skateboards into lamps. Likes making things by hand. I love pulling things apart to see how they work. If you give me per...

For this tutorial, I have constructed a very simple and cheap sketch board. If you have ever wanted a tracing board or just a little on-the-go drawing board for both day or night, search no more. This uses a few small wood scraps, an old CD case, paper, and a small flashlight. This is my first instructable so please bear with me.

Your first step is to remove the top of a cd case and also remove the papers enclosed.

Once this is done, make a small enclosure or wooden stand for the top of the plastic case to sit on.

After this is done, trim a piece of paper to replace the CDs album cover. This will make the light from the flashlight appealing.

When this is finished, hot glue or super glue a small, cheap flashlight to the back in order to give off son light from underneath.
