Does anyone have any designs for a light table? I'm looking for a cheap but durable solution here. I'm looking for something a little more permanent than a piece of glass on sawhorses, but I don't want to have to sell my internal organs to make it. Any suggestons?
If you could post schematics, offer advice, or direct me to a website, I would be forever in your debt.
If you don't need a huge exposition unit, here's what I done.
I found an old neon light rig that held 4 36" tubes, turned it around and built a wooden case around it. It came with only two ballasts (2 tubes per ballast) but was lucky enough that there was another smaller rig there so I took the ballast and wires in it. Then wired all the ballasts to a regular light switch, I baught a glass to cover it all and I put the whole thing on big 4x4 pieces of wood and voila! A sturdy and efficient light table that you can cover up to convert into a work table. Of course it won't be helpfull if you allready have bigger screens.
