RETIRED theater builder
Don't ask why my client wants back lit Honey Onyx wainscoting, wondering if I can do it with LED rope light, anyone have ideas?

The rope lighting on the onyx is not perfectly even. If you knew there were rope lights under it and looked right at the onyx you could see the areas right under the rope lit up more. But basically the rope light is a mess of tangled rope behind the onyx so you get a randomish lighting pattern that looks perfectly good. There is a shelf under the onyx holding the rope light which is somewhere between 0"-2" behind the onyx. I think one of those full LED panel lighting setups someone linked above would be the more perfect solution, but I'm happy with the rope lights.

Spaceman, you and I are on the same page, but the checkbook rules.
