LED Light Box

Woman standing in front of the custom-made LED light box.

In this episode, I show you how I made a light box that can be used for a bunch of creative stuff. For the frame, I worked with cheap materials that I already had but you can consider using solid wood so you automatically exclude some steps about the edging. It was my first time making splined miters and I must say, I loved it! Look how the process of making the frame can be simplified if you have a table saw and make yourself a 45 degree cross-cut sled. I have a video explaining that here.

I couldn’t resist showing you a few more shots and close ups from the crib 🙈 It was such a joyful build and having the support from @rockler_woodworking, @avidcnc, @cmt_orangetools and my Patreon members was the cherry on top! When I stop for a moment and leave the hard work and tiredness aside, I get these realization glimpses of how my workspace is truly becoming my dream from 5, 6, 8 years ago. And all of you take part on it as well as some amazing brands that all together carry me around and allow me to be closer of my limits of essence.

What is going on…a new project already?! 🤯 I am in serious need of more shop storage and I have to start somewhere.
I decided to build a few wall cabinets and this @cmt_orangetools precision dado blade is perfect to speed up some rabbets. Wait, what?! Dado blade in Europe? That’s right. They exist and CMT makes them! 🤩

Here are some white fluffy clouds, just how I like em! 😍 In order to get them perfectly white, I sprayed 2 coats of primer over the valchromat, 3 coats of Cloud-White paint AND 2 final coats of transparent waterbased matt varnish on them. I used a pretty cheap spray gun + compressor and I’m definitely not a pro, but somehow managed to achieve a good result.
