We have a box! Gotta profile the long sides, quarter round the bottoms, profile the corners, make the diffuser panel and cut the lid. We should finish up this coming week.

I think, you might be better satisfied, with some LEDs about 5000 temperature...

Glad you are leaning this way.... would have loved to have this option when my table was set up... as it is, it's on the 'to do' list.... waaay down there.

Way too Blue.
Your brain adjusts to make you think it is a good color but in reality that Color Temp is harsh on the eyes.

Compare “Daylight” to “Cool White” lamps at Home Depot.


Why do think offices use “Cool White” 3800k and not “Daylight” 5000k.

BTW...it is cheaper to manufacture 5000k LED’s than other temps.
That is why you see so many LED lamps in that Temp range.

There are many articles on how harmful cheap LED’s are.

I used (8) of these 5000K fluorescent bulbs in my last light fixture. Lighting was perfect.

Specs:

5000K
2600 Lumens (20,800 total)
90 CRI

One of the reasons I've leaned toward fluorescents was the lighting I was able to achieve with these bulbs.

Thanks! This might give you some inspiration. I made this light to match my old AMF that was similar in design to the Anniversary. I had the corners rolled from 1/2" aluminum plate by a local metal shop. The rest was fabricated from 3/4" maple.

Holy cow! That's some serious wood, and a beautiful light!!

are the corners on the AMF light at all structural or do they just cover the corners? They look great and I'm attempting to do something similar. Thanks and keep up the great work

They were structural with studs to bolt the side pieces and tabs at the top to fasten to the top.

You sure they weren't carriage bolts?
