Divide and conquer drawer clutter with magnetic organizers
When building drawers for my workbench, I wanted to outfit them with dividers that would hold things in place and keep contents tidy, yet let me reconfigure the layout easily. My solution was to inlay two parallel pieces of 1⁄4 " key stock. Then, I built dividers by epoxying rare-earth magnets into hardwood strips the same distance apart as the key stock. Now, I can keep my tools and supplies organized in the drawer regardless of their size or shape.
