Did you end up finding anything? We just picked up a 6 piece unit with no rails the other day so my dad is going to attempt to replicate some rails since finding them online seems fruitless.

Which system do you have? Cado or Royal? I've got some rails for the System Cado that I could sell. I'd even be willing to trade for some shelves and brackets.

I have been looking for some System Cado wall standards. I dont have any extra brackets or shelves, but might ave something else to trade. What length are those?

Yes....I’m still looking for a rail.... it’s for Cado ...not Royal...
Just one rail is perfect for me...
Ulterior you have one?
Ivoryregretts....did you succeed in replicating them?

I've got two spare 7' wall straps, and also have two spare double sided tension pole standards. I had a decent woodworker split one of the tension rods into two useable wall straps last month. They came out great.

Replicating them is relatively easy, but quite tedious. You would need a decent drill press, and the correct diameter forstner bit. After that, it is just layout and then repetition. I suspect there might be the opportunity to make a jig to assist the process.

The difficult part, would be finding the afromosia, I suspect. 6-8' lengths of 4/4 to 5/4 Afromosia (I cant remember the thickness off hand), probably run you the same cost as just buying the finished wall standards second hand, not to mention the time saved. A slightly different story if you have the oak or walnut versions, as the material is far, far less of a cost, ... then it mostly comes down to time.

If I could find a cheap source of Afromosia, then it might be worth designing a jig for this as a side source of income. I could get a 'made in denmark' embosser, and I would be in business.

Zephyr, I think you could easily lap lengths to make them however long you wanted, given that they are screwed into the wall.

I think it was rockland, formerly active here, that documented his making of reproduction Cado rails years ago complete with photos of his jig for accurately boring holes. I tried a quick search of the archive but came up short. Maybe someone else wants to try harder? IIRC, he used either walnut or mahogany with a stain or dye to get close to color match.

Too bad the jig images are no longer there.

I suppose you could join smaller pieces of afromosia, but it would not be true to the original (I am, typically, a bit of stickler for that).

I do have a little over 100 lbf of teak, so if I am willing to go past being 100% correct, I would probably just use teak.
