Hanging new light fixture basement ceiling


I want to install new pool table light fixture.

I have 2 lights close to the area i want the new light. I have to relocate one light fixture in fact so that it doesnt cast a shadow because new pool table light would be under orginal light fixture.

Few questions.
My floor joist run perpendicular to the path i need to go for power and cable run.

Can i cut 2" strip out of drywall. Giving me path from new light to old light. Also old light orginal location install blank cover use junction box (i will not cover up with drywall).
Strip give me access to joist to drill holes to run romex through.

How do install new work box to joist with limited access because of drywall? Drive screws through work box to joist?

Pool table light weighs around 15 lbs. Should mounts land on joist or do i need a ceiling fan rod box of some sort?

Looks like mobile forum view is different i dont see where to attach pics. But nee light 2 chain dual mount 3 lamp shade style pool table light.

Thank you

mount the box like you said,


sometime i screw a small piece of wood to the outside of the other side of the box so the wood rests on top of your drywall,


this supports the other side of the box a bit, so the box wont hang down below the drywall

A side mount box like this one from Madison will do what you need.
