If I wanted to frame a screen what should I use? I was going to go to Home Depot and just buy long pieces of wood but is there anything that I don't know that I should?

1/2" x 3.25" MDF Base Trim is a very good choice.

Light.
Easy to Cut / staple into / nail through.
Velvet wraps around it quite nicely
It's under $0.60 a ft.

What is your screen size?

To quote James T. Kirk;

I have a 150" 16:9 screen and If it is too big for my liking (I was told it would cause fatigue from 11' away) I will frame it at about 136" diagonally if that not too big as well(from 12'). Thanks, i'll see if I could get that at Home Depot or Lowes.
