Lighting Valence Construction

Next step in the build is to cut and hang some 1/8″ hardboard on the brackets I had made to act as a lighting block for the upper deck. Kreg makes some great tools, one of their best inventions is the Rip Cut, which attaches to a skil saw and allows you to do this to a 4X8″ sheet of hardboard:

A little hard to see, but I’ve cut the sheet into 10″ wide strips in about 5 minutes using the Rip Cut.

Now painted and ready for install:

And a shot of most of the valance installed on the layout. I ran out of hardboard but will finish down the road…
