Light table photos and a cool trick to make it translucent

Here are some photos of the last two days of use of the light table:

So in my original DIY light table post, I mentioned that I taped parchment paper on the table to turn the surface from transparent to translucent.  Paper poses many problems here (e.g. ripping), so here's how a friend suggested I create translucence.  I actually drilled a second layer of the polycarbonate over the original layer and sandwiched parchment paper in between. Came out pretty good. May not be a permanent solution but it will last for a good while!

  1. I have always wanted a light table. These things look so cool. Just found your darling blog and became your newest follower!


Thank you for the comments! Always appreciated : )

We'll just skip circle time today.

This morning, I thought the kids and I would go outside a little extra early, enjoy the nice cool weather, do the art project I had planned ...
