Makeup Counter Vanity Light Wiring


I'm in the process of building a Hair/Makeup counter for my photo studio. I have (4) 36" fixtures set into 3/4" MDF supported by 2x4's that are mounted into the studs , two across the top and one down each side. What is the best way to wire them together if they are not going in the wall and all going to one circuit?
Thanks...

if the walls are still open you measure them out and leave a wire sticking out of the wall where the light will be, then when the walls are finished you put the wire into the back of the fixture and screw the fixture on to the wall.

The wiring is not going into the walls. It will all be hidden behind the MDF board mounted to 2x4's outside the wall...

mm if your not going to run it in your walls, you could a panduit or pan-way raceway mounted on the surface

Don't forget that the vast majority of light fixtures require an electric box to facilitate mounting as well as for containment of the connections.
