  1. For the task lighting, I have used an aluminium extrusion to mount the strip to. This help disapate some heat to help prolong the life of the strip.

  2. 7:07 I think cutting a “v” groove for LED strips and mount them on the one side so the strips are aimed at the wall behind. I think this would provide eye relief and maximize illumination

  3. Absolutely LOVE this! Also love that you experimented with making your own jig…love your videos and channel!

  4. That's great, Brad. I'm definitely qualified for the drill group. I was even wondering if the coupling on your extension would fit into the hole. Apparently it did. All this and no "me" nails (lol).

  5. FWIW, long time ago I found the LEDs to be not used, so not worth the time of install. For me, anyway. The first couple times, they're cute. 10th~~1000th times, tiresome.
