How to add a moulding to furniture
I added some cheap LED lighting to my TV Cabinet. I think it came out really well, considering it cost me no more than $40.
The cabinet cost me $160.
Ive seen similar cabinets with inbuilt lighting at the shop- asking about $800!!
Easy to do if you have a VERY basic understanding of electronics and a soldering iron.
Links to what i used-
LED Strip lighting- Cost $4.99 a metre. I used 2 metres. 1 of white and 1 of blue, both cut in half for each section of the cabinet. I had about 30cm left over.
Power adaptor. $7 –
Door switches- $4.95 each –
All the wiring, main switches and the small box were about $15 all up from Jaycar. I also used some Molex connectors for wiring to keep it a bit modular, so if i want to add any more lighting i dont have to cut and re solder, i can just use a Molex adaptor.
I recommend you use a hot glue gun to keep all the wiring in place. In this video you can see it was done at first with double sided tape- and it all fell down the next day. Hot glue and it will stay there forever. Plus its all now very well hidden up under the ledge.
Next up Im going to put a recessed back panel on the right hand cabinet, so the plugs will be hidden but the cabinet will still be flush with the wall.
And I may give the underside of the roof a quick hit of white spray paint to take the wiring off the eye.
Also, thinking i might put the left over blue strip lighting on the bottom of my new Wharfeldale DX1 speakers that sit either side of the TV on the glass top and wire it up with the display lighting.
If it looks any good, that’ll be the next video.

How To: Mitre Cut Granite Bullnose Tiles at 45 Degree Angle – Bath and Granite 4 Less
Hey this is being with lazy granite, I’m going to show you a couple of different steps if you come up run run across a small problem. If you have to bull nose and you’re trying to get a 45 degree angle, here’s the tools that you will be needing you will need a square, some tape, pen or pencil will do and some safety glasses and some earmuffs. First what I do is I line up the square to see where my 45 is going to be going to take the tape and put the tape where the 45 was that line it back up again. Now take my pencil and mark my line as you can see i got a nice clean line is shown with the 45 cut will be and I do the exact same thing with the opposite end so I line it up I look at where my 45 is going to be I take the tape and I tape it. I place back to 45 right place back to square to get my 45 degree angle and I make my line again. Now that I’m not about to be cutting I prepare for my safety equipment put on my glasses on my ear muffs especially because it will get loud and I take my hand held saw with the tile blade on there and we’ll start making the cut along the line. Eric great is 1 45 degree angle and now I’m going up to the next steps to create this. Next one after aided – 45 degree angles and that lineup place them in. Every now and then this edge will not be cut straight so you might just have to take a soggy and just to give it a little bit more staying at the opposite. Take the tape off just to get a much cleaner look there you go. Now we’ve created perfect 45, simple as that.
