Light-box Workbench

My workbench with the LED light turned on. I may move the light to the center at some point, but for now I'll be trying it out to the side.

See his other picture. It is a shower door from the habitat store - so probably pretty affordable.

I scored the door for $30. Unfortunately the square pattern isn't quite set on a 1" grid, but I can still use it as an impromptu straight-edge for lining up pieces. =)

does the light help in weeding? or rather is there a specific reason for putting the light underneath the table? I put mine above it but maybe it works better this way... it would also make it easier for tracing stuff but I don't really trace but maybe u do... great job btw!

It can help with weeding the really detailed projects, but I built it with the thought of creating layered decals. This way can flip the light on and see how the layers are lining up to each other. I don't use it often, and most of the time the table has a cutting mat covering most of the top, but there have already been a few times when it's come in handy. I've got plenty of light above the table as well. =)
