I am considering creating a small 'fence' for the shelf in my camper. I am imagining two strips of timber molding (pine is fine) joined by lots of lengths of dowel (3-4"" long). Is there anything commercially available? - I am not sure what to search for.

I have a pillar drill, but getting the exact repetitive spacing may be a trial. Any deviation will look 'wonkit'.

Any ideas?

Work out the spacings, drill two holes to the required separation in a piece of wood (effectively a dowelling jig) and swing it from one hole to the next.
Use a piece of dowel or the drill itself to locate in the most recently drilled hole, and a straightedge laid offset and parallel to the workpiece edge to butt the "dowelling jig" against.
Or form a lip on the "dowelling jig" to register against the workpiece edge.
Sorry, lousy at drawing, so can't illustrate it.

Any kitchen supplier, and ask for gallery rail.

Like this, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Omega-Npsprl-G ... B00ASQ4SU4

Or

Parts only https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/10x-Hardwood ... _n3OLAAUNQ

Or rail https://www.blum.org.uk/shop/gallery-ra ... en-326032/

Google wooden gallery rail and lots of suppliers.

Probably even the likes of the big sheds.
