If you use planks of 3 cms. thich then the screws should be about 5.5 cms. long.
Consequently we make three seperate compartments in the box.
To make the compartments we make two seperations, each consisting of one plank on top of another.
Each plank is cross connected with srews going at an angle through the cross sections.
All planks are furthermore attached with screws going upwards through the bottom.
