Default My Homemade Light Box

I posted the other day about my home made light box and here it is. I simply cut 1/2 inch pvc pipe to 21 inches long and got 8 3-way connectors and made the box. I then hot glued panels of white Kona cotton to the top and 3 sides and put white printer paper on the bottom. I then took 2 of my husbands workshop flood lights and put in 2 DAYLIGHT 75 wat bulbs.

You can see I have this set up on top of the freezer in our garage..with no other lights on.

In all I spent about $5 for the pvc and fittings and about 1/2 yard of cotton (so about $3 worth) and $5 for the 2 light bulbs.

This took about 30 minutes to make. Here are some ics of the final product and the picture I took of my newest piece.
