Still proceeding, albeit a bit slower than I had expected. Made two spacers, to glue to the sides of the box, then rest the partition I guess you could say on them, with glue, so it could be glued in place. The spacers, or glue sticks more, would not cut accurately with the Xa,cto knife, needed to be sharpened. So, cut with scissors. Only half an inch wide, and came out crooked. So, pulled out a paper cutter, cheap, likely made in China, so I could make straight cuts, quickly, and easily. Did indeed cut straight, quickly, and easily. For about 6-8 inches, then it sort of just squashed thru the cardboard. I could cut all the way by slamming the cutter down, sometimes. Wound up making cuts half the length I wanted (9 in), and butting two together on each side. Cuts were quick and easy at 4 1/2". Made a spacer to set them in place where I wanted them, glued them, put in place, and worked great. The first picture is the spacer on the right, after the pieces were put in place, seen on the left. The second picture shows the partition, with glue, resting on them, until the glue sets. The space for the sketch book will go in similarly.

.....Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
