We have new kitchen cabinets. One of the drawers is 9 inches deep and about 28 inches wide. My wife wants me to partition this drawer so that one side of it will be a four bin. The drawer box is made of melamine. I can't make a groove down the front and back to receive a divider without taking the drawer apart. My solution is to Make a groove in a piece of 1X2; screw that to the front and back of the drawer and slip the divider (plexiglas or more melamine) into that groove. My question is two fold. First does this sound like an acceptable solution? and second is their anything about melamine that would be problematic such as it having any toxicity effect on the flour. I would like to put a small bead of silicone in the corners. So I guess I have three questions. Is silicone acceptable in this kind of application or would it have some toxicity?
thanks for any advice or suggestions.
