We installed these modesty panels for the choir platform in our new church today. We have been working on them in the church barn and in my shop for the past month. It started with this project for the taper sled to cut the 12 supports: ( http://lumberjocks.com/projects/107872 ).... shown in the 5th photo.
They were cut to shape and drilled in my shop. The 5 panels are 3/4” walnut plywood with a solid walnut top rail that was dodo-ed out to slip over the top.The platform was not uniform in depth on the bottom so each support was custom cut for a position to make it plumb when screwed in place. The last shot is the before picture.
They are stained with a special walnut stain that was used on all the other furniture in the church and finished with clear lacquer.
And the team photo:
