28DS Pantry Shelving with LED

Finished this honey-do-list-item.

3 shelves with door switch activated LED.

parts:

Cut MDF to desired size. Cut 1/2" shelveholders. Stain.

Find 12V. I found mine under the fridge by the furnace. Direct to cabinet and solder to LED strip and install the switch, LED strip 3M self adhesive wherever you choose. Stuck mine to the inside so you don't get blinded when opening the door, although LED is soft/warm anyway with 2500K.

DW is happy.

Thanks Mike!

I found that I would do the porous edge first with a few coats. When dried I would stain one side, let it fully dry, before staining the other side. I used HDX Terry Staining Pads, and got nice results.

HDX Terry Staining Pads (4-Pack)-K-99488-C - The Home Depot

PS, i am not a carpenter or painter by all means, so take all this info from an amateur please

Another item I use during these projects that helps a lot:

Thanks for the pointers. And newbie here when it comes to staining, so anything will help the beginners curve.

Another Floridian here. Grew up in Daytona Beach area for the most part and used to come down to FL for the Air and Sea show in the 2000's. Good times but crazy busy. I'm assuming with the fancy beer your drinking, you must live on one of those yachts off Las Olas Blvd!

Looks good just be aware that the 3m taping on the LED does not seem to hold up well. I've had issues with it the past. Later RJD

Thanks for the heads up. Got the stapler ready (along with thick electrical tape to not damage the strip's circuit)
