Howdy my friends,

I made this geometric pendant light cover.

I want to flush mount it on the ceiling. I’m thinking I can fill one side with wood, drill a hole, add one of those hollow bolts to it and secure it with the nuts. I believe I can just attach a decorative light socket to that and pretty much be done. Other that the obvious care I should take with the wiring (I’ve done this sort of thing before) should I be concerned with heat? Insulation? Any tips?

WOW! Mark, that’s awesome. I would like to see more of your light fixture, maybe a few of more pictures.

Are you going to put glass in each opening? I think you are correct about putting a piece of wood and securing as you said. Assuming that you are not placing large-based bulbs with high wattage in the fixture, I do not think there is much to worry about.

Great job – I cannot wait to see it hanging.

Thanks Billy,

No glass. I’ll finish it up now thanks to your input.

Great post full of useful tips! My site is fairly new and I am also having a hard time getting my readers to leave comments. Analytics shows they are coming to the site but I have a feeling “nobody wants to be first”.
