My plan was to put puck lights on top of the bookshelves, pointing up at the ceiling. There is about a foot between the tops and the ceiling. That should make some nice indirect light. I hadn't thought about lighting the inside as well.I like that profile. Any plans to put LED strip lighting behind them?
That turned out way better than what I had in my head when you were talking about it a while ago LOL. Nice!My current project isn't exactly fine woodworking. Our summer heat wave convinced us to put a ceiling fan in the master bedroom but the wrinkle is, our ceiling is pitched. The fan can be mounted on an angled ceiling but we'd rather keep it centered on the room. This calls from some kind of adapter. I don't want to get into the drywall because: blown insulation. So I intend to scab a box onto the finished ceiling. Construction is a combination of poplar and Baltic birch plywood, intentionally over-over-engineered to be bomb proof. Here's a test fit of the panel inset and junction box, with some flushing up of corners and edges, yet to do:

And a view of the inside:

Next comes a touch more sanding, a hole for wiring access, and some primer and paint. Then it gets lagged to a rafter. Wiring will go through surface mounted raceway from an old lighting junction a few feet away...again, to stay out of the drywall.
