Louvered Panels

I'm installing a hot tub and want to put privacy panels around the deck but not sure how to build the louvered part of the panels. I think easiest would be to make them stationary and not moveable, but moveable might be nice. They will be cedar, not PT and I will have the 4x4 PT posts covered with 1x cedar on all 4 sides.

Any suggestions on how to go about either? I'm going to go with something very similar to the attached pic.

Another question...
I'm attaching 2x6's to the posts at the top and bottom of the solid panel section and was thinking toenailing(?) screws through the sides or from underneath or maybe going with pocket hole screws. Any advice or suggestions on how to get these attached as well?
