I’m about to start on a fairly large box 12.75” H x 10” W which will have 7 drawers two of the
side drawers will be long drawers to hang neckless in the bottom drawer will
hold rings only I’ve not made a drawer with the ring dividers in it yet, I have
an idea by using the same method as you would to to cut out and make dividers
inside of a drawer only making the dividers shorter and closer together is this correct? I
was hoping someone could shed some light on how this is done for me, I’ve seen
photos of them already flocked.

Thanks
Randy

Blackie, I have cut 1/8” grooves in high density foam and the covered it with ultrasuede to hold rings in jewelery boxes. Just start at the front and tuck the materiel in the grooves as you progress back. I used white craft glue in mine.

However you do it be sure to make them big enough to get your finger inside to get the ring, and not too high either. I guess gfadvm was thinking of slots to slide a ring into- and I’m thinking you meant a box shape to hold the ring. His way probably makes more sense, since then you can see the top of the ring when you open the drawer. Good luck- and let us see how it comes out.

Doing fine- finished my week of teaching at the coast and now trying to get the house back into some semblance of order. Then I’ll be able to start on a new project- Saw whet owl carving for class project.
