Thanks for the details. Was very helpful.

I worked on my panel frames last week/weekend. Used 5/4x4" finger jointed pine ripped in half to create roughly 1"x1.75" pieces as you did. Went with pocket holes and glue to join the corners. Still have to add braces to the larger panels.

Since my larger panels which are not quite as wide as your large panel, I'm thinking one horizontal brace and one vertical brace should do the trick.

Looking forward to seeing the last mile of your build.
