Picked up a design for a homemade light box in the Biweekly Forum yesterday and built it today. Played with it a little this evening. First, an heirloom baseball in a case my son gave me. (Autographs are Stan Musial in the front, Lou Brock and Bob Forsch in reflections) Shot with Sigma EX 28mm f1.8 DG on a K10d.

BTW, the light box was a hit with one member of our household, who saw a potential sleeping post.

Nice Paul...Can it be extended for larger objects?

Actually, it would be very easy to change the configuration since I didn't cement any joint except where the lower half of the elbow joins the leg. Everything else is pressure-fitted and could easily be replaced by longer members.

How about a link to where you found the instructions. Looks good.

Happy to provide. Mugmar provided this link over in the Biweekly Forum. Once you get to thislike, there's even another (with sound) that's even more detailed, but these directions are excellent.
