Drawer dividing without damaging the wood!

The drawers in our new, oak chest of drawers are quite big- 75cm wide, 30cms deep, 20cm high. DH would have conniptions if any dividing involved screws or glue!

I want to divide the spaces up a bit; and the two options are adjustable dividers which are a bit short and rather flimsy, or Ikea Skubb fabric 'boxes'

I prefer the latter option but finding some that fit more or less exactly, or two, leaving enough 'useable space' is proving difficult.

What do you do; or what ideas do you have?

TIA

these look interesting, by why the need to taper?!

Make your own with thick or doubled cardboard and contact paper?

I've started using cardboard boxes. Cheap, customisable, and turn up in quite a few different shapes and sizes so minimal waste of space.

We've divided drawers with cardboard and duct tape. Good for several years. Revolutionised the sock drawer!

What lives in the drawer?

Shoe boxes

Shoe boxes, gift boxes, clear boxes used here - and the IKEA fence type divider but I find those annoying!
30cm sound A4 size so file boxes with removable lids might work

I use IKEA scuba boxes in my chest of drawers. They come in all sorts of different sizes and colours

I use the skubb boxes in all our rooms.
