I have Seymour XD screen material on order, but I need to build the frame for the screen. I am not currently concerned about a black border. That will be easy enough.
Anyway, I just am looking for a good, solid, and reasonably easy frame for a larger 135" diag screen.
I don't have easy access to metal that is the size required (pretty much 10' long for the top and bottom of the frame).
I've seen the use of primed FJ (finger jointed) pine for a minimalistic front false wall set this way, and I thought that maybe the design would work as a way to create a sturdy and square frame (using different wood)
Forgive my basic MS Paint drawing skills.
The screen material would wrap around to the back to be stapled. I will also have 2 additional vertical supports to keep the top/bottom rigid with each other.
So will this work OK? I have been searching for a couple of days here and it seems that people are making smaller screens that don't need the extra strength, or they are working with metal materials that I don't think I can get working the way I would like. I saw a design using corner and 'T' pieces and square tubing (20/80 Quick Frame
), but I can't find a source near me that doesn't want to charge an arm and a leg.
