Mostly finished up the screen today. I still have to wrap some trim with velvet and install around the edges. The actually viewing area of the screen is 130" 2.40:1. 120" wide and 50" tall. I know there is a chance I'll have to make the screen smaller, but I figured I'd start out as large as I could go and can always downsize. It is a DIY screen made with Milliskin Matte White and Milliskin Matte Silver spandex from Spandex World.
Frame is made from 1x4 pine. I know most used poplar, but I'm giving this is a shot. I'm using screen tight rails to attach the spandex.
Ripped some leftover OSB to set the spandex away from the bracing.
Quick test fit.
Silver is on, ready for the white.
Pinned everything tight before putting it in the screen tight.
Just checking out how it looks. Like I said, I am still going to wrap the edges in velvet once I determine If I'm going to stay with this size. Also going to make GOM panels for around the screen to cover the false wall. My light in the middle is currently burned out.Edited by Jailguy - 10/27/13 at 8:54pm
