  1. Thanks for mentioning me.

    Many people contacted me after the article concerning storage problems. I have to agree with this also. I Did make another light tent that can fold up using fabric, glue, wire and coat hangers.

  2. Wow this is fantastic! i’ve been searching the net for homemade light boxes but this one i think is just so simple, i like the thought of being able to store your materials in the box when your done. hahaha i have just the same box too!! question though, what light did you use? what wattage would you recommend?

    1. John – I used a compact fluorescent bulb in a simple metal utility lamp. It was a 60 watt “daylight” bulb. That gives better results than the soft light bulbs.

      Actually, you could try different ones to see which works best for you.
