Pool Table Light Fixture

[wpcol_1third id="" class="" style=""]

This light started with an 8 foot long fluorescent fixture. Normally a light fixture must take into account the heat that is going to come off the bulb but fluorescent lights are very safe in this respect and you can completely box them up. This light is basically strips of maple framing in maple faced plywood on 5 sides, the fixture attached inside with cutouts for the chain, and clips for the light diffuser.

The entire diffuser assembly can be unclipped and removed. I chose this option because I didn’t want the diffuser panels loose and movable. The clips are just shelf clips you would normally use in a cabinet.

The overall effect is very sleek and matches the table and the cue case. I exchanged the cord for one that has an on/off toggle because I installed a receptacle box in ceiling for adding christmas lights to top of light fixture. This way I could use light switch for receptacle to turn Christmas lights on and then turn fixture off.
