Re: Drawers - keeping them closed?

Keep the ideas coming guys. As the OP, I appreciate the new posts although it was some twelve years back when I first asked the question

Re: Drawers - keeping them closed?

I am in the finishing phase of our new refrigeration. Look at the simplest latches I made at the bottom of the slides

Haha, sorry mate, I was just commenting on posts that popped up on my side bar, I didn't look at the original date

Hey Jedi,

Looks beautiful! Too bad you're not single. I imagine I could find a few uses for handy craftsman...

My two cents, for what it's worth, is I've always hated anything that protrudes in any way. Offshore, I'm one of those lucky people who seems to get tossed around and will inevitably bash my hip or knee or some errant body part directly on the pointiest bit of whatever happens to be sticking out. But then, I'm a relative pipsqueek in comparison to you guys - I'm only 5'6" and around 130lbs....

Those latches look to be prime candidates for someone like me...! (No, I'm NOT clumsy and I always have one hand for the boat.)

p.s. Wotname, I've always liked the drawers you have to pull up. When seated, they're incredibly sturdy. But as someone previously mentioned, with cost-cutting, modern production boat designs are not going with cabinetry that has to be crafted.

What did you go with in the end?
Warmly,
LittleWing77
