Good Point... Some mugs could go on a shelf.. Instead of boards with
pegs... Some mugs could be displayed on boards with a shelf... I do some
woodworking and I could build both peg boards and shelf boards that would
easily mount to a wall... In fact the shelf boards would be easier to
manufacture. The shelf could fit onto the support board via a sliding
dovetail. I would make the display boards from a nice hardwood like cherry
or black walnut. Thanks for your comments and all comments and suggestions
are welcomed. You can also e-mail me directly with your suggestions...
