Simple Wooden Drawer Divider

Pin It

In five minutes, I cut down a 1x4 board to make this great organization piece for my daughter's bathroom drawer.

I measured the width of the drawer and cut 2 pieces to length.  Then I measured the length of the drawer and divided by 3 to estimate the section pieces, cutting four pieces.  Always estimate a bit long, so you can cut down to slide into place.

I assembled two "T" shaped sections with a width cut and a divided length cut (see below).  I used the kreg screws, but nails will work just as well.

Here are the two "T" pieces assembled and the other two divider pieces.
These fit perfectly in place.
I left the two front pieces unattached so she can adjust if she needs to change it.

Now I want to add this to all the drawers.
