Re: Pics of room - where to start with acoustics

What type of fabric do most people use if they buy locally? Burlap
Is there anything else that is usable?

With the wood frame what is the best size/type of wood to use?

I used burlap for my corner bass traps not counting the GIK ones stacked over those in the front of my room to cover the front wall. If your considering the burlap because it is cheaper or more convieninet to find, I don't think that you would regret using it. My side relection panels are also burlap. If it is appearance is very critical GOM might be the route you would like to go. The weave is slightly different also. Burlap up close looks almost like it is covered in lint. Fortunitly mine are in a very dark room and they are black (dark color also works) and nobody would be able to tell. You want to use strong wood that is light and easy to work with. For the wood, maybe someone would comment on the different variations in the different price ranges but it is not set in stone what is best.

You can also use Muslin. It's inexpensive, dyable, and relatively smooth in relation to burlap.

Ref Post #28 for two different style builds - is there a preference on how to build the back area of the panels?

Just some cheaper fabric I found at JoAnne Fabrics. $3.99 a yard though I did get some of it on sale. I didn't buy it all at once as I wasn't sure on how it was going to stretch over the wood.

It says Black Scroll 3680899

I like that Fabric. Do you remember what it's called by any chance?
