Has anyone made (or indeed got) a drawer to hold china etc where the crockery is held in place by pegs located in holes in the base of the drawer. These pegs/ dowels can be moved about depending on how you want to arrange the crockery.

I understand the principle but I wonder what the best size peg to use is and also what the optimum hole spacing is.

I am 'known' by most of the kitchen shops so poking about in them is not an option and I can't seem to find the info on the web.

Cheers

Spacing at about 35mm cts, 20mm dowels.

Woodfit sell the bech dowels in 12s if you don't fancy turning them.

Thanks Jason. I'm also assuming that an 18mm drawer base is needed?

You haven't got a code for the pegs by any chance have you? I can't find them in their catalogue or on their (very badly laid out IMO) website.

Cheers

Looks like they have stopped doing them as a search for the product code comes up blank, same with Isaac Lord. Out with the lathe :D
