23 September: The lightbox arrived, and proved to be rather more complicated to use than I'd expected (I think I might have guessed). Nevertheless, I present for your delight and delectation the first three objects.

19 August: Simon Bisson had blogged about buying a cheap eBay lightbox. I went to look, and after thinking for a bit, bought a rather more complicated set that included a cheap lightbox, backdrops, lights and reflective acrylic. It hasn't arrived yet, but the thing that convinced me was realising that taking archive photos of weird papier maché artifacts before disposing of them would be so much better with a lightbox. So this is started. I've also corralled several of the latest round of weird things in one place.
