Default Re: Door Panels

when I made the plain panels in my first bug, i used 1/8 inch particle board, 1/2 inch foam padding, and some vinyl with a nice dark red/black marble pattern on it. I was thinking if I did the 3-d thing, i'd use the 1/8 inch particle board for the background layer, use 1/8 in foam on it, then maybe some double corrugated cardboard with the pop out sections and wrap them in 1/8 inch foam padding with extra foam glued into place strategically to give it the 3-d effect..
but that all sounds like a ton of work and LOTS of room for error, so i think i may look into that quilting idea instead.. haha
