Shelf Pin Notches

Postby alainalbert » Thu, Oct 17 2019, 9:42PM

I cut shelf pin notches on all my shelves. What you have to do is to insert a phantom adjustable shelf for the shelf holes and then add a fixed shelf with RTA joinery that is a simple notch. This works fine although it is tedious and you have to delete all the fixed shelves if you need to change the doors.

It would be great if shelf pin notches were an option within the adjustable shelf parameters.

Please help me vote this feature into the next update.

I've been asking for this for about 2 years now, seems that it wouldn't be too difficult knowing that the shelf is adjustable. I would only need to be a short dado or groove made with a ball nose bit, just enough to catch the shelf pin. To make it really nice 3 options I can think of, 5mm and 1/4" diameter shelf pins and spoon shelf pins.
