Here's how I built my panels.

Insulation
I started out with John's Manville 2x4x2" panels from Specialty Products and Insulation (here in the states).

Wood
1"x4"x8' - Cut into appropriate pieces.
4' long for the long parts, and 2', 1-1/2" for the top and bottom.

Fabric
Joann's Fabric. Burlap: $2.99 yard.

DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND BUY AN AIR STAPLER (if you have a compressor)
This will pay dividends and speed up your build ten-fold.

Ok, so I cut all my lumber first. Then I made "kits". Each containing two long pieces, two shorts (top and bottom), a 45-degree brace, 4 stop blocks so the panel sits in place and two "cleat" hangers - like how they hang kitchen cabinets.

Once all lumber is cut, assemble all your panels - like an assembly-line.

Then staple the fabric to one side.

Flip it, insert the panel, then staple the other side, and then the opposing sides.

Use "hospital-corners" for a neat finish.

Good luck. Any questions, please PM me for a quick response.

Yep Brad, Great stuff! I like the burlap cloth, and had planned on using it in my live room. At Joann's Fabrics, the ponte cloth I used is US$9.99 a yard, whereas the burlap is US$2.99 a yard. For the live room traps... burlap for me!!!

Thanks for sharing all the details of your build, and of your treatments.

And once more, congratulations on a job well-done.
