Hi Al, nice to see a post from you. Hope all is well with you folks. In all my years of buying furniture, and I've purchased a lot of drawer cases, I've never seen these "dividers". Never even in a furniture store. I'd pitch 'em.

I have a number of bureaus that don't have these so I think you can safely remove them and go without them.

Good to see a post from you!!!

Moderation - even (esp?) with regards to humidity!

I spent a very little time in a temperate rain forest (Alaska Inside Passage), beautiful, but I was not there long enough to realize the ravages of that constant high humidity. I couldn't take the humidity that T-Al lives with. I'll turn on the A/C here more with regards to humidity than to temperature.

Northern IL has it's challenges climate-wise, but dry air in the winter, some high humidity for a period in the summer, and the change from hot to cold keeps a lot of critters and other problems at bay.

I do quite a bit of woodworking and used to watch the New Yankee Workshop religiously. I'm positive that they are dust panels.

They may well be called 'dust panels', but how much dust can get in a dresser with the drawers closed most of the time? And when they are open, the dust will fall in the drawer, panel or not.

But a drawer on wooden runners can create some sawdust as it wears. W/O a panel, that sawdust would fall into the drawer below, or on the floor. Maybe that is where the name comes from?

when going out on my own, and buying furniture for the first time an uncle said when you buy a dresser make sure to see if it has "dust panels". An indication of a well made dresser. Not sure i believe that correlation but i think dust panels is the right term for them.

I don't have much of a problem with mold, but I am getting a bit rusty...
