    Flatwork, Just Not Wood

    When I use the light on my drill press, it shines in my eyes, Not a big deal but an irritation.


    So I came up with this. Some 3/4" aluminum and 1/4" white plexiglas




    It gives a nice glow and doesn't diminish the light, it looks very bright in this picture but is very diffuse.
