The technical team ( sound guys ) asked me to create some sound baffles for the horn section in our orchestra.
They had purchases the baffles with cloth covering, so I just had to design something that would hold the baffle and stand up. I chose ash to build the enclosures. It is great to work with and takes stain and finishes well. The team was very please with the results.
After Several years of use, they have held up well. The have been picked up and moved many, many times.
These were constructed of ash with dadoes and pocket hole screws as the major part of the joinery.
