Dividers & Grooves

Divider Drawers Title Image

Machining custom dividers, grooves and predrilled holes is always easier to do before assembly. Plan out your interiors and simply provide a drawing that shows the location and spacing of your dividers grooves or holes. Avoid last minute reworks, have Western Dovetail do the work. Holes can be drilled in the fronts for drawer face attachment.

Please provide a sketch for your configuration
Here are some guidelines for specifying dividers and grooves:


Dividers can be made of 1/4" 3/8" 1/2" or 5/8" thick stock, let in to a 1/4" deep groove, set at 1/8" down from top edge of drawer, Removable. (Lateral=side to side, Axial=front to back)
