Drawer dividers

Posted by aliris19 (My Page) on

Hi All! I have a question about constructing a cabinet with undermount Blum soft close hardware ... It seems to attach on the sides of the box, so is it necessary to place a wooden divider between drawers in a drawer stack, or can you just attach the drawer dividers to the sides of the box OK? Is there a stability issue if you do not include the intervening separators?

RE: Drawer dividers

Hi TIA, I'm not a cabinet maker but I am handy. I took a look at our custom cabinets. They use side mounted drawers, not under-mounts; but they are essentially the same concept. Each drawer stack is one box without any dividers. I had to look up your hardware and almost immediately found a nice installation video. It also shows a box without dividers (eventually). Each of our custom cabinet units was made from a complete box butted to the next box. Therefore most 'sides' are actually almost 1.5 inches thick and therefore massively stable.

Here is a link that might be useful: Blum install
