excited for the merchhhh

Saknika says:

Love this! Absolutely looking forward to the builds on some interchangeable backdrops and floors! I bought a cheap little light box a few years ago, and it’s pretty small… so this is absolutely going on my must-have list once I have the space to store it! ♥

Felix From Nebraska says:

Nice project Glenn! Thanks for sharing.

Crystal Soulslayer says:

Great project. I get the impression that, if you’re the kind of person who’d need one of these, you’d _really_ need it. The construction is simple enough that you’d need very few tools to be able to build the thing. Probably wouldn’t be too hard to adapt it to a flat-pack knockdown style, either. 😀

BTDarters Channel says:

Glenn, such an awesome build!! I think I’m actually going to make one of these! Thanks so much!!

Imari Nefty says:

glen good work but wife says your avocados too ripe

Mehdi Habib says:

You are creative, my brother, I wish you to die

Tom Pritchard says:

Sure glad I watched your video. I’m hoping to sell my hand carved Santa’s on Etsy in a few months. Taking pictures have been very hard to do. To get the light right, this would be a great way to do that. Thanks again!! Looking forward seeing your backdrops.

Dainen G says:

Love your videos dude!

Jos Gonzalez says:

En la intro del producto me pareció ver unos aguacates de muestra dentro de la caja de luz genial jajaja saludos

Brian Prusa says:

Congrats on the merch and 900k subs. Keep up the good work. I like to use bondo on large gaps/holes like the pocket hole. Dries fast and sands well.

Steve Ansell says:

Awesome project! I am definitely going to build this. This seems like a great tool for shooting small pieces.

NY ZEN says:

thanx for the video it really got my creative juices flowing. so many options and versatility with this project.

Dave Harry says:

Your craftwork is good. As always. But whotakes photos of moss around a camera or watch; devices known for their susceptibility to moisture?
