I recently built an 8 foot long entertainment center that has 4 different doors for electronic equipment. Well, I built it maybe 8 months ago, but now want to complete it 100%. I need to place some lights inside each cabinet door, the door is framed stained glass. With the lighting inside the cabinet, it should really make the stained glass pop for a great look. Any one have any experience on what kind of "inexpensive" lights to place in a cabinet/entertainment center and where I can purchase them, (Home Depot, Lowes, Woodcraft stores). I think one of my concerns is the actual heat the unit puts out. I have holes bored in the back for heat to escape, but still a concern. ideally there will be a total of 4 lighs, one in each compartment. Another concern is can the lighting unit be angled torwards the stained glass window. Help? Adivce and insight? Thank you in advance.

Hi John. I'm new here, but "old" to electronics. If you don't want heat, LED is the way to go. Both Lowes and Home Depot have a small selection of LED under-cab lighting. Or, if you do "Google" search for LED's, you'll see many on-line options. They tend to be a bit more expensive initially, than other styles of lighting, but they last forever . . . and no heat.
Artie, Thanks. I didn't know that about LED and no heat output.

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
