I would like to findanother option other than runing conduit up the back side of one of the pillars.

thanks for all the help guys.
In the Landscape Lighting Resource Manual chapter 7-4 thru 7-10 Nate discusses some good wire hiding techniques for posts.

Just FYI

It is funny how you write something in the form of a question thinking that you have a decent amount of common sense and you have thought of all the options, then someone writes something that is so simple that when you go back to read your original post you feel like a total dumb a$$.

That is how i feel about the hiding the wire post from earlier. It was obvious to me that most guys must be using conduit to get the wire to the top of a pergola. Then someone mentions routering the post and putting another piece of wood on top of that to conceal the wire and you are like, geeze, that is so simple why didn't i think of that in the first place.

oh well, that shows how a simple post from someone more experienced can really help a greenhorn.

thanks for all the help guys.

I will eat this elephant eventually, even if it is one bite at a time.

Excellent post southern... Thats EXACTLY why we are all here. No matter how much experience you gain you can always learn from others trial and error.

I have learned just as much if not more here than I have hands on in the field.

If you were a Carpenter, you would have thought of that. Sometimes you need to wear many hats to make things work. Life is full of learning experiences. The hardest part is holding people by the hand and making them try something new.
