home made lighting

so I stumbled on some nice little fluorescent lights in my local shop they are 10 watts and are 3500 K so I can accurately set white balance, as they are only 10 W I will naturally need a number of them and this gives me oportunity to place them around the room to avoid harsh shadows. I think I'll probably put 3-5 on a panel they come with conecting leads so they can be daisychained and have individual switchs so I can control power,

I'd welcome suggestions on the building of the pannels I will mounth them on should I provide some way of directing the light ? like reflectors or something ?they are about 1 foot long and fairly compact (they are supposed to be for under cupboards)
