if you need to light up your bonde bookcase, this hack will do it for you. aj used the trettionen interior lighting strips inside his bonde bookcase to shine a little light on his barware.
“i’ve recently put up some bonde cabinets and i did a minor hack: i drilled holes through the upper corners of each cube with a 1/2″ bore bit and installed the trettionen lighting strips inside the 4-cube sections fronted by frosted glass/aluminium doors. it really makes the whole piece seems ‘lighter’, pun unintended. i then ran all the power cables to a series of adapters housed inside an older, low bonde cabinet, wiring access handled with a 3″ hole saw.”
lighting it right makes a huge difference, doesn’t it? link.
