The Shakers used peg rail in nearly every room. They used it to hang coats, hats, brooms, and even chairs while the room was being cleaned.
Shaker peg rail is available in longer lengths and can be custom-ordered in any length - to go around an entire room, for example. We can cut inside and outside miters (add $0.50 per miter in addition to the per/foot price), change peg spacing, eliminate pegs to accommodate door openings, etc. Telephone for details before you order.
Dimensions: Peg rail is 2 1/2" wide, solid cherry or rock maple with either beaded or rounded edges. Holes are bored 6" apart. The basic unit is 18" long.
