In this video I make a new light box, which I intend to use for tracing out stencils and possibly some photography. My old one was smaller and didn’t diffuse the light very well. After watching a few Youtube videos I decided on my design. It measures 22 x 28 inches and is big enough for a full size poster board. I purchased some frames with glass from a thrift store for $9.00 each. For the box I used some scrap MDF to make support pieces and some other wood scraps to make the rest of the glass support pieces. I also used some 1x4x6 lumber to make the main part of the light box which was about another $8.00. I bought some foil tape to line the inside of the box to reflect more light the tape was about $8.00. Lastly I ordered some Bright White LED strip lighting for the inside of the box this cost $15.00. So for about $50.00 I was able to build this light box. Granted I did use some of my scrap pieces of wood so that helped keep the cost down.
I wanted to mention two Youtubers in particular that influenced my design. The first is “Get Hands Dirty” she built a really nice light box it was in her video that I got the idea for the foil tape. Another Youtuber that influenced my design was “Epic Fantasy” his light box build is really inexpensive he gave me the idea of using the foam poster board as the diffuser. I highly suggest checking them both out “Get Hands Dirty” has really nice video production and some cool builds. “Epic Fantasy” will blow you away with his prop making skills.
What I liked about my build: I liked the end result it works and that’s always nice when it all comes together in the end.
What I don’t like about my build: I need more lights it works well but I think it could be better. Also I would like a different solution for the very small trim that holds the glass in place I feel like it could be improved. Also I might need a support across the middle for the glass it feels okay but I wary about putting too much pressure on it.
I hope you like the video and the light box, hopefully this will inspire you too make one.
