Mark me down as another interested in seeing the end result. I have the plans for my own illuminated one but still have never gotten around to building it (in desperation I built a mirror board with 1" tiles in the end) so would love to see a finished project.
I'm afraid that I've gone for a steampunk look; the box parts are dark wood and brass with a frosted glass board (expensive part but worth it). I have yet to save up for the LEDs!
