Hi Jack! You can sometimes get wide thin boards in hobby stores,
like Hobby Lobby or train hobby stores. You'll find that in a lot
of cylinder boxes the divider board is just a little wider than the
slot it fits in; the very ends are sanded down to fit in the slot.
I've also had some that are 'notched' on the ends with basically
a saw-cut squared edge. That would be the easiest thing to do:
get a 1/8" piece and just narrow the ends.
If you want a true dimension to fit into the slots, go to any good
lumberyard that sells hardwood (not Lowes or Home Depot). They usually
have planing or large sanding machines and, for a fee, can make wood
to just about any size you need. Bear in mind that if you go this
route, you'll have to buy a piece quite a bit bigger than you need so
it can be handled safely in a sander or planer.
