Reclaimed Wooden Dining Tables
Step up the cool factor by installing a low-voltage LED lighting system for the table. You will need:
• One 16' reel of 12v 3200K LED strip lighting with self-stick back
• One LED dimmer
•One 12v 1a wall transformer
Prior to securing the wood top, install the LED strip along the upper edge of the table sides. Start in one corner and slowly peel off the backing while using firm pressure to adhere the LEDs to the wood. Continue around the perimeter. LED strips can be trimmed at any cut line. Look for a dashed line on the strip (usually after every third LED) and cut with a utility knife or scissors. Drill a 3/8" hole in the plywood and pass the power connector through the hole. Hot-glue the remaining portion of the hole closed. Next, plug in the dimmer and attach it to the underside of the plywood with hot glue. Plug the wall transformer into the dimmer and continue with the next step.
