  • How To Build A DIY Sideboard / Buffet Cabinet

    I loved this project and have a suggestion. You made a "mistake" with the center divide piece cutting a notch on the top front. Turn that into an advantage by placing a strip of LED's on the bottom of the top piece passing through that notch. Then figure out a mechanism that when either front drawer is opened will turn on the strip. And thank you for the excellent presentation. I will make use of this.

    From your instructable even though you avoided talking about the wiring, you did show a picture of the wired lights and they appear to be daisy chained from the incoming power source. You could insert the LED strip power source first in that chain. Then before that a three position switch (strip, down LED's, both) and in the spirit of instructables add in a remote control. ;-)If that type of electronic wizardry is not in your wheelhouse a note here on instructables with a request for suggestions will pull in a giant pile of help for you. Your wood work was very nice and I like the look of the fixture. My guess is you and I would not be the only ones who would really like those additions. Note on the LED's for the uplight.

I was looking at your pic and the color of the ceiling I think would work well with warm colored led's. All together the led strip, thermal adhesive, power block, switch will be less than a $50 addition and make an awesome followup instructable.

    I agree with the other comments, Excellent work!The thought did occur to me that you attached aluminum brackets to the top side of the fixture. They would have served an excellent secondary role as heat sinks for an additional strip of led's aimed straight up to give you a diffused uplight from the ceiling. All your wiring is already there. One extra ballast and depending on your switching you could choose three different lighting choices with the one fixture. What do you think?

    P.S. Love the knife rack above your stove. Easy access and if you have children gives you controlled access. Nice.
