    I made it during a blizzard this winter. It worked pretty well for a trial run.

    You may need to reinforce the structure with tape because it becomes more flimsy after removing a lot of the material.

    I decided at the last minute not to make it. I decided that if I was going to spend time making a light box, I wanted it to be more sturdy than the one you linked to, so I ended up making the one someone posted a few months ago: http://www.pbase.com/wlhuber/light_box_light_tent .

    I've taken lots of pictures, and I'm trying to decide which ones to post for comments.

    ...it was quite informative. I'll build one myself this week. You could also use PVC pipe and make it collapseable but that's more work.

    I'm writing an article on a folding PVC light tent this weekend. I'll post here once it's up.
