Workbench lighting. LED strip lights

I added some lights to my workbench this morning. I applied one strand of strip lights behind the bottom rail of my cabinet. I would like a little more light so I plan on adding another strand on the bottom of the cabinet facing down instead of just facing against the back wall.  I recently started seeing this type of lighting at work and decided to try some. I ordered everything from led wholesalers.com.
I wired in a switch next to an existing outlet and then wired a new outlet on top of my cabinet. Next I plugged the 12v transformer in and ran the supplied low voltage wire down the inside corner of my cabinet, plugged it into the tape and then taped the strip lighting to the cabinet. I think it turned out well.

I added a second strip pointing down and now it's just right.
