Wiring Option #6

Option 6. Two Three-Way Switches Control Two Lights: Power Through Light
End-wired lights are controlled with two three-way switches with power routed through the light boxes to two-wire cable to the two switches.
Tip:
Look at how the power is connected at lights: White wire taped with black electrician's tape from the nearest switch to a traveller wire that connects the second or end light, then pigtailed to the brass fixture terminal. All wire is utilized this way without waste. Both the white wire taped black and the traveller wire (usually red) indicate hot wires, if switches/lights are reworked.
