p.s. you should send photos of this along with drawings to Woodworker & Wood magazines for consideration. I bet you would get published.
AMAZING. You have so much talent and if you're not doing this for a living, you certainly should. You would be so successful no doubt. I wish I had half your talent! Truly inspiring.
P.S. LED emits very little heat.
Yes, i was worried about the heat as well because the puck lights are embedded inside the wood and so I knew that the heat would not vent very well. I used LED puck lights with wires that were hidden inside the shelves. The company for the LED lights was Hampton Bay and I bought it at Home Depot. I also chose LED because they are long lasting. Good luck on the build
