I have a vision of chunky skirting boards, just a rectangular block (no grooves or carvings)120mm tall and something like 50-60mm thick. In the back of it, I'd like to have some channels for wiring (speaker cable, networking cable, etc), and have some circular spotlights mounted flush in them every few metres so they glow on the floor.
I've spent hours Googling for such a product but no luck. Does anyone know of such a product out there?
I suppose I could buy the strips of wood, prepare it, and do it all myself, but truth is I'm a complete newbie to DIY! I know what I want, but I have no idea how to achieve it!!
Go to a local timber merchant, select the size of skirting board you would like and get them to router out whatever size of groove you would like. Make sure it is in the middle of the board so that you can securely fix to the wall.
