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'.

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. Duncan
