A simple request for a baking sheet divider which I complicated as is typical for me.

The picture I was given was plywood with L brackets but I added a few requirements

1. Must match cabinets (cherry)
2. Must be solid
3. Must be supported at the top
4. Must be removable

I cut the slots on the table saw then fit the bottom of the dividers with the ‘56 Dewalt RAS. Love that RAS. The top stretchers? (if that is the right term) are notched as well as notches in the top of the dividers so that everything locks up nice and tight without glue and meets requirement #4. The entire thing slides in and locks in place.

If I were more talented or less impatient I would fill in the exposed slots …

Over complicate things, I feel your pain. Great job and you scored some points along the way, well done! You could always go back in fill in the slots with contrasting wood. “All part of the plan”.

Contrasting wood, much smarter than trying to match. I like that idea.


Have your say...
