Default i want to make a DIY LED Exposure unit Does anyone know exact sizes to cut my boards

I want to build my own exposure unit with a 50 watt LED UV flood light.
im just getting started and dont have any screens laying around. I was wondering if anyone has any actual plans where i can get exact sizes to cut the wood.
WxLxH of each piece to make a 20x24 screen fit perfectly on top?
Pictures/illustrations would help too.
Also what is a good distance from light to glass? any timer recommendations? any help and advice is appreciated! Thanks!

I am doing the same thing this weekend.
I will be making it about 2 inches longer than the dimensions of my screen. I will make a post about how it works out shortly.

Still assembling my lab.
However, the unit worked out perfectly.
Now it just a matter of dialing down my exposure times and increasing my drying time. I'll have an update with that all soon.

I just built the framework table yesterday. Sorry, didn’t take any pics.

But I’m planning for 24” roughly from diode to glass. (20x24 screens). 50w UV LED from Amazon. https://amzn.to/2J2olmr

I bought low lead glass from FabGlass 28”x32”. https://www.fabglassandmirror.com/customcut


I’ve also ordered 4mm neoprene as I’m planning to build a vacuum frame.
