My “All-New” Wooden Darkbox
Well, not so new anymore….it took me quite a long time but I’m back again! Went on holiday for two weeks to Italy (had a wonderful time, even rode on horses again yeayyy!) right after we got back I went to pick up my new little bunny rabbit! He’s very cute and horribly distracting and just can’t get myself to go back to the 50+ working week. Maybe it’s a hint I should try and lay back a little but we need to get work done right ?! With doing nothing you get exactly that: nothing. And I don’t get up for nothing in the morning 😉
Anyway, enough of that mumbo jumbo talk. I promised I’d get back on that dark box that was in the making. Well, it’s ready and in use. Awesome thing about it: I can use it without the help of someone else. Downside: it’s a tad too small for the big plates (but it works so for now I’m good) and I’ll have to heighten the table somewhat more to get it on a more relaxed working height. But other than that….brilliant! Now, apart from the dragging part, I can do it all on my own. The dragging I’m also able to do on my own but an extra set of hands are always welcome!
On to the photos…
I have put duct tape on the bottom inside the box to keep the wood protected from the spillage of fluids in there (which is bound to happen). The silver box is not sunken into the dark box, which I will adjust in the future as to create a bit more working space. I also forgot to make a hangup-system for the LED lights and I’m surely going to change that too. Leaving them on the bottom results in an unnecessary loss of light.

Anyway, love the box as I can work on my own now ❤
Ow, and for those wondering what the hell this bunny looks like..here is one photo of him. And then you will fully understand why he is so bloody distracting 🐰 😉
