From Shockwave AZ:

I made light box from a regular cardboard box and some tissue paper, here are the instructions here:

Here is the result of said lightbox:

From royalestel:
Is another.

This one: Is even easier. Just cut a hole in a bucket (dear liza, dear liza).

This one is easiest of all.
Just use a large tupperware tub.

From Lobo:

I use a light box as well.

While surfing the TNI forums I came across this.

Good, detailed instructions on building a cheap light box.

From Revlimiter:

A camera with a macro setting that works is pretty important. But slightly less than that is a lightbox.

The frame of my lightbox. It's just PVC pipe wedged together (no glue). The black thing on the top is a scrap of ABS plastic that allows me to clip on different backgrounds.

The white stuff is a $2 vinyl shower curtain liner. This diffuses the light, yet lets more light thru than a bed sheet.

Here's how I sometimes have it setup. The 3 lamps are Target clip lamps ($6 each) with high-watt compact fluorescent bulbs in them (like 25 watt). It provides pretty good light. The stand is just an old TV stand that I bought at a garage sale. A low stand like this is actually more comfortable to me than a table.

and with a good, customizable light source like this, you can do stuff like this.
