Drawer Divider

Submitted by zakany on Mon, 03/12/2012 - 10:08

The plastic desk drawer divider we had in this drawer got broken, so I made one from poplar 1x2. I made the pencil boxes large enough to hold an unsharpened pencil. The center box is big enough to put a screwdriver on the drawer pull screws, if they become loose. The divider is friction fit, with its bottom edges sanded smooth to make installation easier. Used screws to pull it together, since brad nails tended to drive pieces apart.
