That was the thought. I cut them at one inche because I don't trust my fingers on the tablesaw with much smaller cuts. I'd hate to look like my old shop teachers.

Upside down U is I guess the shape I'm going for on the top piece.

Only reason I tried without it was I didn't want to hinder airflow to the LED heatsink.
