My build is at about the same spot. I'm figuring out how to build a 3-4" light tray before I cover mt soffits. I'd prefer to use 1/2" drywall to cover the soffits. That would minimize weight hanging from the clips and channel. But, I'm not sure how to support all the stuff that will go in the tray (LED strip, black lights) plus the crown molding.

What ideas are you considering? Anything other that going the MDF route?

Thanks @BIGmouthinDC for swinging by this weekend to give me some tips about my light tray and other things. Definitely will get me back on track this week.

Going to have to empty out my local HD's MDF stock.
