I contemplated ordering a light box. The next question was where am I going to store that when I am not using it? It was dark outside that night so I went to the sewing room and just sat there looking around. I bought a new sewing machine a while back, and it sits in a table. It also came with an extension table that I have never used. Hummmm So this is my redneck lighting box, available when needed, easily stored :P
Here is my sewing machine in it's table.
So I took my machine out of the table giving me this gaping hole.
I grabbed my extension table and set it on top of the hole. That gave me enough room that I could easily set a 8 x 10 sheet of paper in the glass area.
I then grabbed one of my OTT lights and set it under my table. It is plenty bright enough for me to see to trace
Here is a before picture:

I got my son to come in and take some pictures for me. He can be quite the photographer at times. Here they are.
