Ok, I mentioned previously I was going to show the fight tomorrow night on a 106" screen.
I was told the screen was too small and I should build a bigger one.
I have a small budget for this project.
I was at Home Depot tonight looking for other stuff and came across a few ideas:
Screen will be 16x9 format, 150ish inches approximately.
I'll build a frame with 1x4s. The width will be 12 feet and the length will be about 6.75 feet (6'10" probably)
I didn't realize 1x4s came in 12 foot lengths but saw some today for cheap.
I initially saw some cheap vinyl flooring, 8x12 feet. The beauty of this is it's seamless. I'd use the backside, but it would be grey. I'd probably want to paint it white. Also, the backside material isn't very hardy. I could see tears or weathering pretty easily.
Then I saw whiteboard material. They've got sheets of 4x8. I could get 3 pieces cut to 4x6'10" and attach them to the frame I build. I'd put nuts/bolts around the edges only, and use gorilla glue on the back to attach to the frame as well as caulk to cover the seam.
I'm planning on building this frame with whiteboard tonight, unless anyone thinks this is a seriously bad idea.
I've got plenty of space in my garage to store this screen when not in use. I also don't really have much space under my carport for more than a 12 foot wide/7 foot tall screen (should've got the 10 foot high carport!)
My main question I guess is - any problem with using the whiteboard material as a screen? I'm hoping not.
