« Part 3: Photography Light Box Part 4 of Box Building series Part 5: Barrel Hinge Installation »

I updated my light box to make the lights more adjustable. The rods simply slip into the holes on the sides.
I found an extra piece of an old stand for the top light. I bent it in my vice and screwed to my existing bracket.

I think it is self explanatory, but ask if you have questions.

I’ve come to this late, Kent, what sort of wattage are you looking at for each light?

Martyn, I’ll have to check tonight. I don’t remember right off hand.
They are pretty low wattage though.
