Drilling a Long (12") Hole - Update

Furnished content.
(from WoodNet.net)


I am upgrading our main bdrm closet system (new cabinets, shelving, etc.) and planning to add several miniature puck (accent) lights on the bottom (front) side of some of the shelves. In my OP I was asking how to/best way to drill a straight hole to run lo voltage wire from the back of the shelf (about 12) and hit the puck light location (see attached link for the OP).

https://forums.woodnet.net/showthread.php?tid=7371580

Had some great responses/ideas - but after some thought I came up with what I think is simpler (and more reliable) way to route the wires to the puck lights.


I am using furniture grade ply for the shelves and edge banding the front edges using a matching edge banding router bit set (Whiteside 3400). This results in a convex V cut on the front edge of the plywood self and a corresponding concave V' on the edging material (Mahogany in my case). I realized by lopping off the end of the concave V I could create a channel in which to run wires. Then a short hole from the front of the shelf to the puck. I can run the wire(s) out the sides and up to the top where I am mounting the lo voltage 12Vdc driver.
