Welcome back to another episode of Tognacci Woodworks with me, Tim Tognacci. This video will be a bit different than the others since there is no “woodworks” in this one. Instead, I’ll be showing you how to replace a light bulb with an LED strip light, but I have a feeling that you already knew that.
Anyways, first things we’re going to need is an LED strip light. Either make on appear out of thin air or head to the store because this is imperative to the project. Carefully examine the box… yep, that’s the right one. Once you’ve confirmed with yourself that you did indeed make the right purchase, go ahead and open up that box and take out all of the components. Which is most lightly the light and a set of instructions.
And speaking of instructions, that does seem like the next logical step in our process so let’s take a look and see what we’ve got here… okay… looks standard. Here are all the pieces, make sure you turn off the circuit breaker, don’t electrocute yourself, okay, I think I got it. Go ahead and crinkle up those instructions, find the nearest trash bin, and shoot. Ugh! Darnit! Ahh, there we go! After you realize that you are not in fact an electrician or a professional basketball player, go ahead and head to the trash bin and remove the instructions and uncrinkle that ball of paper because reading this is actually important if you want to install these the right way.
Before we get started, let’s grab the necessary tools to complete this project and that includes a hammer, a screwdriver, and some pliers. I’m not sure which kind so I grabbed two. Oh! And I’m not sure why, but some eye protection as well.
