Allow for expansion/contraction
Hi. I'm way beyond my skill set, but nearly finished building a craftsman style box chandelier. The piece that attaches to the ceiling (from which the box hangs) is about 12” x 32". Most of the weight will be carried by the electrical box in the middle, but I'm thinking the piece should have four or so fasteners around the edges. I'm worried that if it is firmly attached, wood movement will crack the piece. I'd put ebony plugs over the fasteners, but what/how underneath? Thanks for any help!
