My wife had one of those plastic dividers in this large draw and it and everything else moved all over the place in the draw. So I re-sawed some 3/4” oak to 1/4” a and made this draw divider for her. I put a lacquer finish on it. Life is better in the kitchen now!
Update. This is a bit late but I forgot to say I used 5 minute Epoxy to glue it together! It’s still holding strong!

I like it. My sister has been lobbying for me to make her something for her kitchen. Perhaps this will inspire me to actually do it.

Great looking. I have to make my wife a double deck one that she saw in a kitchen magazine when I get started on our new kitchen cabinets this summer. You did an excellent job. BTW, I read your profile and you sound about like me. I started shop in Jr High in 1963 and the teacher kicked me out for spending too much time there. Had other classes to take too….....................LOLr.

Nice looking drawer upgrade. One more thing to put on the list that I never seem to get to.

Gees man that drawer is about 15 feet wide! Every time I get a fork I tell myself to make one of these. Nice.

Working on my cabinets now almost finished and saw your project….....6 hours later my wife got the same divider as a suprise !! Thanks for posting. Sure beats the stuff we saw at the box stores.

Your welcome Ron,
A tip for you, I cut up and fit some anti skid rubber mat into each bay. Helps things stay put and it keeps everything quiet too!
I took a peek at your work.. Nice work Ron!
