Drawer organizer diy cutting wood
I used 1 X 6 X 4 ft rough lumber to cut this out and only used a table saw, the high I needed was 2 1/5″ tall so I got 2 pieces Then you will resaw to 3/8″thick anything smaller will break under use I used my table saw and a 80 tooth blade I had very little sanding. Using the template below I cut the length. I have two sections on for the top and one for the bottom. They both will be the same size. I do it this way so I can put the best side down. And to make sure I made all the cuts needed.

The first thing you need to do is lay out a template the same size of the drawers you want to put in dividers. The on shown here is 3 1/2″ x 2/12″, you cam make them any size you need. I used my sanding table to lay out mine. You can even use some scrap wood and make a frame the size needed.
I then place the boards on the line I want to mark. Mark the over all length as well as the each cross piece. You will have a top and a bottom section. All the top will use the lines going in the same direction. and the bottom will use the opposite direction. Once the length and dado’s are marked you are ready to cut.
After all the wood is marked I set up the dado for the table saw to cut 3/8″ slots at each mark. You will cut them half the size of the board on each piece. After you cut a few try to fit them together. This way you know you have a good fit and will not needed to re cut anything.
When all the dado’s are cut, assemble together they should fit snug. Set the fence on the table saw to the drawer size. Standing to the side of the saw slightly pull to the fence and cu to size. This will all so give it an angle to rest against the inside of the drawer.
