    Looks nice maybe a few less? Hard to tell without seeing it in person. I am doing some R & R on a job that has these fixtures mounted on posts inside a pergola. Nice looking and durable.

    I would be concearned about people burning thier legs on the lights. Specially after a few beverages at that bar. We will be building an outdoor kitchen/entertainment area/adult beverage depot this winter at our house and I am planning to use fiber optic or led ropes concealed under a lip.

    I would consider a dimmer for the application in the picture if one is not already installed

    The heat was a concern but due to the spacing inbetweeen the lamp and the brass cover as well as the large openings ont he top and bottom they remain somewhat cool. Warm to the touch but you could rest your leg on it without it burning you or even being an uncomfterble warmth

    Hey Billy,
    Heres a good opportunity to install our 4 watt accent light under the counter. They don't get hot enough to burn someone, install completely flush or can be surface mounted, and are available in 10 colors.

    We have our new deck brochure available in print form too.

    Hey Billy, I like the idea of the rope lights in a dado. Ever since I saw that staircase Firefly in Florida did I have wanting to try it. Let is know how it comes out.

    looks a little bright to me, and the heat is a concern to me as well. as much light is coming out of there, I'd say there is heat to go with it. Even if there was 2 inches between the metal and bulb, with two bulbs in it, that is still gonna heat up. I like the effect, but I'd want to scale the wattage back a little.

    That's a nice effect though it does look a little "hot" in brightness and warmth to the touch.

    We are running 2-20watt Xelogen lamps in each one, you can order them w/ 10w to soften up. I just thought the application was pretty cool.
