These are some sound baffels I made for our church. We have a orchestra of about 20 pieces, so the sound guy has to fight a lot of problems to isolate sound, especially the horns.

These are ash with 1/2 HD Sandeply backs. Dados for the plywood back and pocket hole screws for the butt joints between the sides and the end-caps.

There were 8 needed. I made a prototype then 7 more in a production run.

It took me about 3 weeks.

Very nice! Being a LumberJock I thnk I like the backs better than the front! Do they set on the floor or do they hang?

These sit on the floor. The sound guy can arrange them depending on what he want to control sound wise.

They look very nice, but aren’t acoustic baffles typically made with a core of 4 inches of rock wool surrounded by acoustically transparent cloth with a very very thin wood skeleton frame so they can absorb the sound rather then just reflect and muddy the source? Usually you will either want to absorb the sound or diffuse the sound, not just reflect it. I applaud what you were trying to do, but you might have just made the problem worse. Google for acoustic baffles and you will see what I mean. (I’m into home theaters and had to learn a bit of acoustics to set mine up)

These are what I ordered for my home theater, could probably build them quite a bit cheaper:
