 We will surround them with standard 19mm thick, 90mm wide pine. Corners will be braced with triangular MDF cut on the laser cutter to a design that makes it easy to line up the wood to 90degrees, and bang nails through quickly. We then insert batt into frame, wrap it with fabric, eg calico, which also happens to come in 1200mm rolls, and staple calico to frame. Quick!

   * Ideally, have panel "​floating'​ off wall by a few cm - then the backside of the panel can aborb sound too. Also reduces mechanical coupling of panel and wall. If suspending from ceiling, be even more generous - 10sm or more.   * Ideally, have panel "​floating'​ off wall by a few cm - then the backside of the panel can aborb sound too.
