SWBMT (otherwise known as She Who Buys Me Tools), just a couple of days ago, said she would like to have hanging ceiling lamps where we now have a lamp on a table and a floor lamp.
Sounds reasonable. Let’s go buy them.
Well when we got to the store she saw the leaded glass shades on some of the lamps and that swayed her.
That’s OK, I like them too.
Then we got one for the kitchen, too, to hang over the table.
Now I’m thinking about the installation and decided to design a carved plate to go on the ceiling. I think it may be called an escutcheon, but I’m not too clear on the exact word.
But, being the technogeek I am, I also thought about taking them down for cleaning and such and I thought I’d like to incorporate a quick disconnect for the power cord and have the chain on an open hook. That would make removal a snap.
So I designed this thing, whatever the correct word is, in the software that is part of the CarveWright machine.
Your can see by the dotted line how the work box in the ceiling will go nd there’s so extra room in there for a small receptacle to plug in the lamp.
So I question how to mount a small, single receptacle in the work box above. I would like to have it recessed in the carved cover plate so the plug from the lamp will be less obvious.
Your suggestions will be gratefully considered.
