A while ago my daughter decided to remove her craft supplies from the cabinet we had relegated to that purpose in the kitchen and put them in her room. She cleared out a shelf that formerly held ‘containers of stuff’ and asked if I could build some sort of dividers for her paints.

Since the shelf itself is not fine furniture, I utilized a piece of hardboard to create the cubbies. The divider fits together via slots made halfway through each piece. It’s held together completely by friction!

The hardboard was the ‘bottom piece’ under the cartons of laminate flooring from when we put a new floor in the parsonage. It has a faux wood coating on it which ruined one of my router bits which I used to create the slots. Well, at least I got to use it up and get it out of my shop.

Somewhere in the future I have to make something to house all her colored pencils.

Nice job, Dave! Anything to keep the family organized is great. I’ve been procrastinating on a project that requires ‘the bottom board’ in a stack…
Thanks for sharing.
Are you gonna make drawers to go in those spaces?

She doesn’t want drawers. I didn’t think the cubbies were a good idea, but that’s what she wanted. Now we’re in discussion about her colored pencils.
