I think many people make custom light boxes. You can make different boxes to suit your needs, using what ever is available. You can mount almost any kind of light behind either plastic sheets, or thin cloth in a frame made up of wood, plastic, or metal. I have used some muslin fabric and I have heard of people using white plastic sheets available at most home centers or big hard ware stores. The only thing you have to be carful about is if you use strong halogen light bulbs or tungston bulbs you have to make sure there is enough ventalation so it does not melt things. It has been a while since I played with lights but I have seen some how to's on the web as to how to make difusers. You can even hang a white sheet in front of a light to try out some different settings. Kind of gettho (cheap looking)but fun for experementation. You might not want to do that in front of a paying client but can make for some nice soft light.
