We bought some picture slides from the 40’s at an estate sale and my wife wanted a way to display some of them. I made her a light box with some scrap wood (found from a dumpster). I used some rope lights that were 5 buck at my local hardware store. Just another project to hone in on some woodworking skill. Hope ya’ll like it.

I would really appreciate feedback.

That’s a cool idea.

Robert, Pretty cool idea. Nice way to show off some unique pictures. The top has a nice embellishment, kind of looks 40ish.
