So great, I moved into my new place about 6 months ago. Brought all my gear from the old tiny ass apt to this larger 1200 sq ft place.. I have a lovely dedicated room for my toys. its about 12x18, large archway on one side, and french doors on the other long side.
To be short, I have a dalite model b 92" screen that isnt cutting the mustard anymore with the 9-1/2' ceilings, and the genreal size of the room.
I want to go larger. Im thinking of about 9-10' wide.
Id like to go with a fabric based screen, 1x4 frame to stretch it on, then a seperate frame of 1x2's covered in velveteen to border it.
Will the general idea of building smaller diy screens still function for something this large?
I have the woodworking skills (apprentice custom furniture builder/designer)
Im mostly concerned with keeping it square, and the general apparance and performance.
My budget is around $150, If less, then great - more money towards a new sofa! If more.. well then I guess Ill be eating rice and beans for a month. I really only need to purchase the wood, screen material, and border material. I have everything else I could ever want to build it with here.
The room is light controlled, I have black out drapes, and sheer drapes, and a very shaded porch. My pj is a ptax100u. I'm slightly concerned with the usability of the screen later on (Id like to run a crt...)
Ill toss up some quick photos of the space tommorow.
I'm going to be painting it a mocha color I think?
Discuss? comments? questions? Concerns? pics of my partner in crime in her bathing suit in the room? Dont ask! haha
