  • If you are installing strip lighting then you can router out a groove on the underside of the board
  • When you come to miter the edges, it's best to cut from the centre of a board, using both halves of the board for ease of installation and to account for natural variance in grain and tone
  • It is recommended to use PU wood glue to bond the core material, and superglue for the surface
