Floating shelf recessed lighting

We don’t sell lighting though we will prepare your shelves either for puck lights or LED strips.

Holes for pucks are $20 per hole. Most pucks will fit a 2-1/4” hole, some require a different size, please be sure to specify the correct size holes we need to drill.

We also offer a routed channel with a diffuser lens that we will flush mount into your shelves, $35 each shelf.

Our channel will fit many of the strips available today, the inside dimension is 11/16” wide x 5/16” deep.

The ends of the channel locate 1″ in from the ends of the shelf.

The minimum distance from the front or back edge is 1”. Please make a sketch with all dimensions showing where to place the channel.

Two important things to have in mind when planning your installation:

1) The wiring to connect this sort of lighting is typically for use inside kitchen cabinetry and the like, and isn’t building code-acceptable for installation in a wall cavity unless encased in solid conduit.

2) Just about all LED strips must be plugged into a transformer or driver, so you’ll need to find a serviceable location for the driver.

We can install the channel or drill for pucks in any type of our wood shelves.

We cannot cut a channel in stainless steel shelves however we can make holes for pucks in stainless.
