    My daughter had track lighting in her kitchen and it created a LOT of heat. Good light but uncomfortable, esp with the stove running, too. They finally took it down and installed a ceiling fan with lighting

    I've had track lighting in my studio for years! I love it. I can move the light fixture where I need them. I have a tendency to move things around now and then.

    funny, if that had the title "Quilter's Lite Bar" or something similiar, it would cost a lot more.........you have solved your own problem and at a premium...........bet a lot of us will follow your idea.......

    A wonderful and adaptable solution to an ever present problem for most of us. You can see clearly now.

    Buy the way, is that a Nolting LA in the corner. The table looks just like mine and the color is very familiar!

    Give up some info on her, please! How do you like her!

    Lighting

My DH and a friend helped me get it wired up and hung. I'm planning on adding onto it to make it go further across. $100.00 so far. What do you think?
    I'd say you've found a suitable solution and you should have plenty of light now, especially with it aimed over your LAQ

    I have smaller versions ,4 ft. I think, over my sewing area and over countertop on other side of room. Really helps. My eyes aren't what they used to be.
