Love your simple idea of using the bottom of the cross beams as a base for the LED strips where you are not adding a lot of other "stuff" to create the lighting. Clean and simple. I have a closet workbench that will get this treatment, along with a Ham radio bench (but I will run those LED's off of batteries or a non-switching analog power supply because computer supplies tend to make "buzzy" RF radio noise). And as far as the 50,000 hour life I would not be surprised if you got a lot more than that out of them, but by the time your original strips starting going bad you may not even be there anymore or something much better and cheaper will have been developed to replace them with anyway. Thanks for the 'able, good stuff.
