I'm quite particular but I am pleased to say it turned out near perfect. The felt around the frame peels back easily, and the frame was then cut on a miter saw with a metal cutting blade. The screen itself is laminated onto a piece of plastic or acrylic and cuts well with a sharp blade. The holes that fix the screen with the rubber bands were then drilled with a forstner bit. A little spray adhesive for the felt and presto, all done. The 142" screen has an overall height of 62.625" (according to the screen calculator on the SI website), while a 113" screen has an overall height of 62.5". Choosing a 113" size was a no-brainer as I couldn't go any larger and I didn't have to cut the height of the screen.
