1. Draw out the circles on the plywood. There are many ways to do this but I prefer the “string, thumbtack & pencil” method. Cut out using a jigsaw or saw of your choice. I cut mine on the bandsaw since I just learned how to use it!

Cut the pieces for the dividers. Cut the notches as shown using the saw of your choice. Sand all of the pieces thoroughly.

2. Assemble the dividers, then position the top and bottom. Attach to the dividers using glue and 1-1/4″ brad nails.
