Deck lighting

Add ambiance around your deck this season with a couple of well-placed accent lights.

Measure the area you wish to cut out to install the light- ensuring you are avoiding any existing hardware that may be behind that area. Bear in mind that pressure treated wood (as shown here) may be a bit tougher to cut. Additionally, the maximum depth of cut that can be easily achieved with this application is 7/8".

Using the Dremel Multi-Max with the MM452 Wood and Metal Flush Cut Blade, cut the area you marked. This half-moon shaped blade will allow you to make smooth running cuts.

With the hole for your lighting complete, sand any rough areas using the Multi-Max with the MM14 Hook and Loop pad fixed with the MM70 Wood Sanding Paper. Feed the electrical cord through the hole and firmly set your new lighting fixture into place.
