Sorry there hasn't been much action going on in the miniature sense, plenty going on at home though. I do however have a few days up my sleeve now as both kids have gone off to camp and whilst I miss them it is lovely and quiet here at the moment.
I am in the throws of finishing my kitchen, the cabinet is made and I'm doing the last little bits. The thing that has stalled me however is the light in the range hood that I have mentioned before. I am worried about the level of heat inside the wood and have two options I can show you.
Firstly here is the Range hood - I must apologise for the unglamorous images.
I have widened the opening of the RH to allow more light to fall onto the stove top.
I then made an opening in the back so I can thread in the bulb.
Next are the two bulbs I can choose from. The first your standard wheat bulb - I am afraid I wont be able to secure it enough to stop it being in contact with the wood fibres inside the RH. I'm not sure if it was a coincidence but the first bulb I tried blew and I wondered if it got too hot. The other bulb I don't know the name of is brighter and of course hotter but easier to secure to the inside because of the flat plate it has as its base.
Here is a picture of the bulb secured and un able to move whilst inside. I am told these particular bulbs have a long life as it will be difficult to change the bulb if it blows. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Happy minis every one.
