Now that we're ready to start doing the fabric panels for my theater, I need to get an idea of how much I have to account for the width of the fabric when measuring. I know I have seen it on here somewhere before, but I can't seem to find it. I have seen "a hair under 1/8 of an inch," but I'm am not sure if that's for a panel going up against a wall or column, or if it's going up against another panel? And is it 1/8" on the overall dimension, or from each side? Like if the space is 36" wide, is it 1/8" total (35 7/8") or 1/8" of each side (35 3/4")?

If you are using GoM, allow for a fabric thickness of 1/16".

To use your example, for the fabric covered frame to fit in a 36" wide space, the frame should be 35 7/8". When covered with GoM, the frame will friction fit in that 36" space.

I created a few 1/8" thick pieces of wood that I used to test fit the lengths as I was cutting. Saved a ton of time on measuring.
