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.
