A case for each corner (6 sheets) with an eight foot ceiling. Each sheet was cut into eight 2" high wedges.

Yes they are 2 inches thick. I cut them with an electric knife (like you use at Thanksgiving to carve a turkey!). Someone out there has a video showing how he cut fiberglass panels with one of these so I went to Walmart and picked one up for $9.95. It works great and was well worth the ten bucks.

Thanks for the link...It's a very good explanation on how to make corner chunks..
I wouldn't have believed the an electric carving knife would cut it so cleanly..

Chas,

I just saw this thread and want to echo the other comments. Very nicely done, looks great and I really like your method of construction. I definitely learned something new.

Thanks for posting the pictures.

Bob
