Has anyone cut down old church pews before and made up new end panels?

I'm just looking for ideas as to the different options I might have. I was initially thinking of jointing 100x50mm pine, cutting the profile out then shaping the edges.

I've used many church pews in the past, I love pitch pine for all sorts. Still got one or two boards in my cave.

Stupid question, do you need new end panels?

We cut one down recently and successfully joined the cut off end to the shortened seat and back.

I have a 13ft and a 15ft and I’m going to cut them down to about 7ft each and use the current end panels. This means I’ll have enough of the seat and back to make a couple more if I can work the best method to do the end panels.
