I’m somewhat new to wood working and was wondering how I would install 3 hanging Edison bulbs to this piece? It’s a curved piece and meant to just hang on a wall by itself. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I would cut a dado in the middle of the top curve with a router, wide enough to accommodate a supply wire for each of the three drops. Then drill through from the middle of the dado to the bottom where the drop would exit, three times at the desired location.
