Heat shrink is a great idea. Could be used to cover the ferrule to keep it from scratching and cover rough cable ends, too. Silicone tape might also work for this. Sticks to itself and makes a nice, tight seal without the need for heat.I really like the rope sheath for the cable. Pull the core out of scrap rope or cord and it would make a great cable cover.Well done!

These are a really solid idea, and all these ideas in comments are great, too! I was thinking finger joints for the corners, and rabbeting in the bottom. Maybe use the same 3/8" setup to cut a 3/8" rabbet along the bottom panel edges and then cut a 3/8" groove all around the bottom to lock in the bottom panel. I also like @DavidH752's idea of runners on the sides, or maybe have grooves on the sides that slide onto runners in the larger storage cabinet. Then they could slide in & out as individual units and stack together outside of the storage unit.Just some thoughts...

I considered that path. I chose this solution to allow for backward compatible fluorescent T8 lamps, as well. Even though I own my home, I always try to factor in resale value, and not everyone likes LED lighting.My primary requirements for the project were 1) keep the functionality exactly the same both before & after; and 2) support both legacy fluorescent and emerging LED.I really like your idea of a label for the type of lamp used. I have always simply replaced lamps with the same type, but one never knows who put the lamp in before you, and with these fluorescent fixtures supporting both T12 and T8, it makes sense to provide a message to the user about how the fixture is configured. Saves opening it up to see the actual inner workings.
