Derrik has a collection of about 40 x-rays and for the longest time wanted to build a light table for them.
He says, “As it happens, I needed a coffee table and the Ramvik design looked perfect for what I wanted to do. With the help of a friend, we cut and routed a big hole into the table top and wired together some florescent lighting. The drawers don’t function as such and are only there so the housing has sides. I managed to get the piece of acrylic (through which the light pours) for about $30.”
