Q & A: Easy Drawer Dividers

Q & A: Easy Drawer Dividers

Q:

Help! The junk drawer in our
kitchen is out of control! I have trouble
finding anything in there. Is there a simple
way to add dividers to my kitchen
drawers without taking them apart?

A:

You bet! Here’s a way to control the
clutter in less time than it takes to find
the potato peeler.

To make the brackets that hold the
dividers in place, groove the edge of a
3/4-in.-thick board on your router table
and round over the outside edges.Then
rip the grooved edge off the board and
crosscut to length. I like to attach the
brackets with double-faced tape or a little
hot-melt glue. That way you can
reposition them to suit your everchanging
collection of kitchen junk.
