Installing the Vertical Drawer Dividers - Very Detailed Work

Today I installed the vertical drawer dividers.  There are two and they have 1/2 inch dovetails on each end.  In the video I say that I am going to make them 1/2 inch deep but I changed my mind and made them 5/8 inch deep.  It just seemed better to me.

So here I am lining them up, and then scribe the knife line around the dovetail

The back part of the dovetail will be removed leaving 5/8 inch  before I install the vertical rail. This will match the depth of the dovetail.

Here I am cutting out the center drawer blade when the two pieces intersect.  I am cutting out 5/8 inch notch.  In the vertical rail I cut out a notch of 1 1/8 inch so when they go together they are flush.  The vertical divider is 1 3/4 inches deep.

Now I am cutting out the dovetail on the top drawer blade.

This one is installed. Looks like a good fit.

Got the second one installed. And they are both perpendicular to the drawer blades.

Now the next step is to install the drawer runners.  I am starting to layout all of the little pieces that I need.
Here is today's video:
