The next step in the layout construction process is to install the backdrop panels. These will be attached to furring strips, which I cut 2-inches wide from 1/2" Oak plywood as shown in the photo here.

I installed three rows of furring strips. They are installed simply via screws to the studs in the wall.

These were trimmed to fit their location and attached to the furring strips with yellow carpenters glue. A brad nailer held the panels in place while the glue dried while minimizing the amount of damage done to the panels.
