I question the necessity of 10 GA wire for the lighting circuits.
But anyway... you can splice 3 wires in a number of ways:
- some mfrs actually makes a 3-way splice
Yeah they look silly
- the butt splices with 2 wires in one side and 1 in the other
- crimp on eyelets and use a terminal strip
Electrically, all good connections work
equally well so it's down to what connection will fit in your space. The butt splices will be fine.
