I'll just start off by stating this is my first build!
I just purchased a HD25e and plan to use it in a room with some ambient light. After reading through many posts (especially by MM), I believe that the best approach would be to use a DIY screen with FlexiWhite and painted with SilverFire v2.5 3.0.
I already purchased the screen (actually Carl's BOC, but I am choosing to return that based on a previous post of painting BOC vs. FlexiWhite), Triple Plush Black Velvet through SY and all the materials to paint the screen.
Even after reading all these posts, I am still a little puzzled on how to properly spray the SF to the screen (i.e how many coats, when to do it as part of building the screen, etc). I know this probably depends on what type of frame I choose, which leads me to my next question.
I really like the Zero Edge look (and as thin as possible) and would like to try and recreate it as much as possible. I found the awesome screen MM posted here, but not sure if it would really apply to the FlexiWhite material I already purchased:
LED Edge Lit Zero Edge Comeuppance - 110" diagonal Silver Fire 3.0
I would like this screen to be portable, so affixing 2x4's to the wall is not ideal. Instead I would like to have the frame removable and hung with something like the Hangman picture hangers. I don't mind having a thin bezel (something like the 10mm borders the Zero Edge products use). I was thinking of perhaps building a frame similar to what is shown on Carl's website:
If I did such a build with say 1x4 poplar, what type of trim would I use? Should I still wrap the trim with the Black Velvet to help with the contrast, or is that pointless with this thin of a Bezel? Or is their a way to get no Bezel similar to MM's post above using a frame that doesn't need to be affixed to the wall? I am also concerned with getting clean edges while wrapping the FlexiWhite around the 90 deg corners (i.e. how do I avoid overlapping and bubbling the screen around the corners)?
I am open to any and all suggestions from the pros who have done this before. I want to do it right on my first attempt. Any guides or diagrams that could be posted with a similar build would be greatly appreciated.
