Start with a Drawer Organizer

1 Bring drawer disorder to a close

Store-bought kitchen drawer organizers separate silverware -- most of the time. But the organizer you design and build works all of the time because you customize it for the size and number of knives, forks, spoons, and accessories you use.

this drawer's contents. If anything,
it encouraged clutter by overstuffing
the drawer.
Size the Organizer

Measure the drawer interior and design your organizer's outside dimensions 1/4" smaller to allow for easy removal of the tray for cleaning. Make it just tall enough to hold the utensils. Then decide how many types of forks, spoons, knives, and accessories you'll store. Make silverware dividers about 1/2" longer than the longest piece of silverware.

Great way to help the wife. I'm half way through my base cabinets now, but I used bottom slides instead of side mounts. It was easier to position them on exsisting shelving.

In the drawer organizer, one option is to make the center divider straight and instead drill a 1" hole in it so you can easily grab it and pull the tray out of the drawer. This is nice if you're setting utensils out for large parties.

Click on the "Print this" at the top of the article and then atleast it gives you the whole article that you can either print or cut-and-paste into a Word Document that you can easily save.
