DIY At Home Tracing Table

At Home Tracing Table - paper over the image on your tracing table
A tracing table or light table can come in quite handy for many craft projects. You do not necessarily need to purchase one if you have a glass topped table or desk and a lamp that can be oriented upwards. This is a page about a DIY at home tracing table.

At Home Tracing Table - lamp angled up to place under the glass tableWith just 2 household items you may already have at home (a glass table and lamp) you can make your own tracing table/area.

My computer desk is glass (or if your dining table or end table is glass - that will work too). Plug a lamp on underneath your table and you're ready to trace! No need to purchase an expensive tracing table!

Must try this. I have a small, low table so I'll stand it on the dining table - on books if necessary. So simple. Cheers.

Something else that works is a dining table that has "leaves" to insert to make it longer. Pull it apart and lay a piece of clear plastic or glass over the opening.


Shine a light up from underneath. This way you can have tracing area of almost any size.
