2015-06-21 (Su) Miscellaneous Kitchen Light Bar COMPLETED

Washing dishes is no fun. Washing dishes while there's not light is worse. Kitchen lights should be unobtrusive and bright. Since I rent an apartment I don't want to install anything cumbersome or difficult to remove. This project aims to make a bright under-cabinet light that is inexpensive and easy to install.

The cabinet where I was mounting measured 34.5" (875mm) from the insides of the supporting structures. Other cabinets will be different measurements so plan accordingly. This same method could also be used to install lights in a bathroom, automobile, or any place where there is a gap of 28 to 47 inches (70cm to 120cm).

Pictures were taken to make instructions. Rather than post them all on the blog an Instructable was made to illustrate the build instructions.

The gist of the project is that a curtain rod inside a clear tube will support an LED strip and provide lighting without being easily visible. Please check out the Instructable.
