Homemade candle box

    This is my homemade candle box. Not my idea by any means... just my build. I cut 2 pieces of 1/2" plywood into 7" squares. These are the top and bottom pieces. I mounted a wired light fixture to the bottom piece, driled a 5/8" hole in the center of the top piece, then glued a couple of O-rings around the hole. I cut 4 pieces of 1/2" plywood into 6 1/2" x 7" sections for the sides of the box. After attaching the sides to the bottom, I used foil tape to line the sides and top for maximum reflectability. I hinged the top and screwed in a 60W (equivalent) LED bulb. It wasn't quite bright enough to use by itself, but it complimented my IncuBright quite a bit. After I installed a 100W (equivalent) LED bulb, it and the IncuBright lit the eggs up like the Fourth of July!

    That's a heritage Rhode Island Red egg, which is fairly dark brown. I'd like to try it on a BCM egg to see how well it works...
