Lights are an excellent way to add drama to built-ins and casework. Today's woodworker has many more options for lighting cabinets than a few years ago. Cabinetmaker Steve Casey explains how to design lighting for cabinets, and where to place lights for the most impact. He adds information on wiring and switches, and gives a brief tutorial on the types of lights that are available and where they work best. From recessed to surface-mounted lights, inside a cabinet or over a countertop, anywhere you need a little illumination, Casey has a lighting option for you.
