Kitchen of light

Putting up wires at home has inspired me to make things to connect those darn wires to. Above is my spanking new kitchen light. It's simply a piece of plywood with LED bulbs stuck in small bulb sockets on one side, and some messy electric stuff on the other. All that wiring is because I didn't want the "Christmas light effect" where the removal, or burnout, of one bulb makes everything else go dark. My idea is to regulate the size and amount of bulbs according to the state of my batteries.

Two 1 w "warm white" bulbs, and a 0,5 watt "ultra white" one. No real philosophy behind this setup, it's just what I had lying around. The picture below shows the difference in light temperature.
