Today I've been working on something completely different. Non-Steampunk, but I would like to show you anyway.
One of my hobby's is photography. For this, I sometimes use big light boxes to illuminate the object.
A special way to illuminate an object is from the bottom.
Four TL-tubes underneith a glass plate makes a nice lightbox.
For this, I have hacked our dinnertable!


A big glass plate, covered with frosted sticker, gives a nice and even glow


The dinnertable could use a fresh coat of paint, so now it's flat black


For now, the paint is dry, but not completly hardened. After it is dry, I'm going to add a translucent curtain fabric to smooth out the overall glow of the light.

That is good re-purposing, and still usable as a table. You must have a very understanding family!!  Grin

Ah but there is a way to acomplish this:
My wife wanted a new table, she was looking for a slightly bigger table.
This one is 10cm larger, my wife's favorite colour and costs less then a brand new one.
It's all about adding all views together and make everyone happy.

That said: my wife (and also daugther) does "diamond painting" and wanted a light box to see the pattern of the diamond painting better.
She also has a profit in this light table.  Wink

It's a new fab here in the Netherlands. It's like embroidering with little 2.5x2.5mm diamond shaped plastic rocks.
Sticking it on a numbered grid. See it as a digital picture with each pixel as a little rock.
I can't seem to find an overseas website, but I'm sure it is named "Diamond Painting" in the UK and US. After all, it is an English name.

This is diamond painting:
Diamond Painting


This looks like an interesting format for doing more celtic designs, like the ones I used to do in the early 80's for early colour computer graphics. An exercise in patience and concentration, though I'm sure someone will now be able to write the code to convert images automatically.

Thank you - I will investigate further!

Cry "Have at!" and let's lick the togs of Waugh!
Arsed not for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for tea.
