    Hey guys,

    I just built one a few days ago and this is what I used. I started with a 24x24x24 cardboard box then I went to micheal's craft store and bought 3 piece's of 1/4 inch white foam board and lined the top bottom and back of the box. I had also bought 1 piece of white Bristol paper to make the seamless backround . I taped it all down with white duct tape, as far as lights go I got 2 of the clamp lights from Lowe's with 6500k daylight flouresent bulbs from walmart. I think that was it............here are some of the pix from it http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/...ry/158530-first-shot-lightbox-c-c-please.html
