I'm redoing a 77 that had laminates and aluminum channel, but I kind of want to go more to a pure wood look.

I used 3/4" x 3/4" strips of wood to mount the partitions to the aluminum. I avoided using channels this way. All of the strips are hidden inside cabinets. Some are only about 5" long where the curves are tightest.

Is that what you did then at the top of the partition between the shower and the sink? I'm having a little trouble seeing where to hide the mounting strip there as the wall looks thin.

In the picture I reposted in my last response it looks like a screw is going up through the panel on the sink side into the ceiling, perhaps as a temporary tie into the ceiling there? The only way I can imagine having that strip to anchor to in that area might be if the white shower panel on the outer wall to the ceiling was kind of shimmed with strips of that width, so the whit panel would go into the shims and the frame could screw onto it on a side as well. Or I guess the strip could be on the surface at the top of the shower on there?

I can see the sink cabinet would provide support half way up the wall but I'm not sure about the best approach at the top of that one.

Also, what are those white screw caps and can I get them at Home Depot? Just wondering what to ask for or what aisle to find them. Or if they are a specialty item from somewhere.

The right wall of the shower is anchored under the cabinet and then the top is anchored behind the plastic light mold. The hallway wall where the shower is was anchored to the floor with dowels, then the top has the anchor inside the shower. It is also anchored to the left partition on the kitchen side since there is a double wall there.

The white covers are just plastic screw caps. Home Depot should have them in the hardware area. I believe they were in the special hardware drawers they have where the rubber washers are.
