Wooden finger holes

Back in the sailing days folks used to latch drawers or traps closed with spring loaded "L" catches.

These would keep the drawer from shifting when heeled.

Some woodworking co. ( like H&L) made round finger holes that were glued in place as trim.

Anyone found a source lately?

FF: Just a heads up but on new ones listed above, the inside diameter for your finger is just under an 1/8" smaller than the ones we have on Hobo. They look the same but I noticed the difference when opening the inside latches.

Very interesting.

Sadly I drilled the holes to 1 1/.4 when creating the cabinets.

I will have to create bushings and glue them in if required.

The lockers are not in a high use area like a galley , so I may get away with out the added finger holes.

The wear pattern will be the guide.

Have to be wood?


they make a lot of plastic bushings for electrical stuff...also the ones for through counters/desk tops for wire bundles.


some come in a nice medium brown....just a thought.


also have you tried Woodworkers supply online?


here's the wood stuff...not sure if any would fit/adapt...

FF: You may be OK. The first 2 pictures are from the new finger pulls and the next 2 are original (1987). Check put the wall thickness in the new ones.
