Backscene Panels

My local lumber distributor was having issues with their cutting machine, so I was left to my own devices when cutting panels for the backscene and fascia. I’m using 1/4″ birch plywood.

Here’s a sketch I made of what it should look like when assembled:

Without a professional cutting tool, and having wanted one for a long time, I bought a circular saw and cut my own panels. Here they are, ready to be attached:

I have a few more things to get before I attach these, though. Most importantly, I need to see what my options for tape are. I was planning on using drywall tape or something similar to hide and reinforce the joints and keep the exposed edges from splintering and peeling. I would then “mud” the tape and any gaps, and sand it all down before painting.
