A customer wants "Hockey Puck" lights in a corner kitchen cabinet(glass door). Sorry, I never installed them. Anyone have any details before I go to mega-supply and view the wares? Low, line voltage? Cut hole? Mount inside? Thanks!
They're typically low voltage Halogen. They can be purchased individually or in 'kits' with LV Trans, wire and splice fittings. I always try to put a receptacle above the cabinet (if no soffit) and install a switch for it.

If they can be hidden by a front lip on the shelf, or the customer doesn't mind seeing them, we use good quality double faced tape to stick them to the bottom of the shelf, or the bottom of the cabinet itself. Hiding the xfmr and making the line connections in a box have always been my headache.
The "pucks" we use (WAC brand) have about 30" leads on them, so we use them as branch wiring, and use those tiny tap connectors to tie them together

an option many cabinet makers have is a 'light bar' that extends the bottom of the cab down to hide the pucks & wires. usually i wire these under, or internal to the cabinet back to a switched X-former. I hate to bury any splice...and yes, the X-former placement is a bear
