The cable goes from the light, to the strip on the ceiling, goes throught it, and then down to the wall socket. Strip 1 hangs from strip 2 by the cable.
Strip 1 has a counterweight to change light direction
Step 3: Wood Process
Cut the plank to two strips of 1inch.
Carve the strips as indicated.
Assure strip 2 to eh ceiling with the help of the screws and the plugs.
Step 4: Counterweight
Sew the bag with the indicated measures.
Fill with rice.
Note: this dimensions are the result of the calculus of momentun, resulting in a certain weight, that equals that volume in rice. If the materials were changed the weight needed to achieve balance might be different.
Step 5: Putting It Together
Assemble the diferent parts.
Join the cables.
Put the counterweight were you want in order to achieve the desired inclination.
