Keith and I visited IKEA today, I needed more storage boxes and a small book case for my Bayeux books and files.
To my surprise and delight, I found my light box. !!!! Yay.
It is 56 " long By 28" wide and 3" deep, pretty close to my specifications. It's actually a desk top. I don't need the legs because I want to put it on the table.
The top is 1/2" glass and I can put things under the glass for storage. (see the pens and scissors etc.)
You can see a division line half way down which effectively divides it into two under the glass.
Up to now my main light box is on a bench top and it is 2 ft X 2 ft. The pattern and the quilt hung down down either side. Now I have bench and table support for either end of the project.
Up to now, I've stood the entire time I was working on the project, now I can sit at the table… (I've been practicing this evening)… it's everything I wanted.
In future I can add more lights if I need them. But it will sit permanently on my table and be a new work desk. It was a fabulous find.
