    I hope this is the right spot to ask this.

    I'm going to lowes to day to get the lumber for my home haunt im buying 7/16 plywood, but I need to know what do I use to support it 2/2, 2/4? I have to say I'm lost at this point. Any and all info would be greatly appreciated.


    Thanks
    Andrew

    might be a little warped or chipped

    I don't agree with some of the methods used on that site.

    Andrew, attach your 2x4s to the plywood so the 4-inch side is flat against the plywood, not the narrower 2-inch side. The reason for this is that the panels take up much less room when it comes time to store them - about half the space.

    Along the same lines, the reason Casey recommended 2x3s is that then you have some weight savings. Not a big deal until you are moving these things around all day, or you have to hold one up by yourself while trying to attach it to another wall. Last year I was helping someone who had some panels made out of 1-inch plywood and 2x4s that must have been oak or something. The things weighed a ton. They will probably last forever but at the end of the day you were dead tired, if you lasted until the end of the day.
