    I have a 36" x 48" double sided Titanic Poster I obtained from my local mall back in 98 and it's been rolled up ever since. I don't want to just frame it in a regular frame, so I'm wanting to display it in a nice lightbox.
    However, as everyone knows, poster lightboxes can be very expensive$$.

    I'm not very mechanical/handy when it comes to building things from drawings, plans, text, what have you.
    I would like to know if anyone on this forum has experience building home made lightboxes and would feel comfortable building one for me and my titanic poster ??

    Like a said earlier, it's not your traditional 27"x40" size poster, but rather a 3 FOOT X 4 FOOT size.

    If anyone is interested, Please email me or post here. I'd like to see any pics you might have showing the lightbox/es you've made for yourself or others. I'm trying to save as much money as possible for this lightbox.

    Thanks
