This thread is heaven.

I'm now in favor of interlocking slotted masonite until further rebuttal.

Here you go, Bill. Slotted, but not quite interlocking.

Masonite aint so bad. Especially if you get some for free somewhere. No splinters like 1/4" plywood. I find it to be a weird combination of paper and wood.

I keep extra dividers on the far end of the box.

I use cardboard and duct tape, but damn that is slick.

Everytime I think, "That can't possibly work!", someone posts up with proof it's working great. Nice work, EZ. I learn something new every day! :beer:

Good god EZ, give yourself a gold star, truly FTW!!!!! That setup is so awesome! I'm sure there's a way to make small compartments within those, using the holes as a foundation for a cross-wall. Small like for a lantern, but I've only done that once. What wondrous method did you use for attaching the wood slotted pieces? Advice on how a non-woodworker could create those cuts nicely?

I do have a full sheet of pegboard masonite that I got off free stuff on Craigslist in general stock.
I see that you just placed the divider boards lower down to reduce its space elimination.
Perhaps some longer items could fit above those spacers ???

=========

Say, are those wine goblets just silver plated or do you travel well?

(Time to surprise my wife. I got a couple cheaper ones that are plated and need cleaning for 50 cents apiece at a ......... yard sale. So much for that Shapp resolution on no excess junk.)

May I speak for EZ?
The slotted pieces are held in place by being full length to the extra dividers and the masonite being a snug width.

However, in an unscheduled inversion having at least a couple of the masonite cross pieces being T shaped and holding the divider down could be desirable. This may be what EZ has already done with the additional dividers.

There has to be some sort of plastic goodie that would just happen to work in the holes as an additional cross divider holder. Hmmmmmmm

You could use small wooden dowels maybe?

Trade a staving woodworker for slotted boards with some beer.
