light boxes do seem expensive. There isn't muc to one, so I suppose it is
the limited production that keeps the cost high. I think I could make one
for a lot less than they sell for, but that would depend on your resources.
Once you have a good one, you will wonder how you managed without it. I
would also suggest that 8X10 is too small. I would suggest something at
least 50% larger.
