Two uprights. A cross piece to hang the screen (with mid span support) and some friction fit Black fabric panels surrounding the screen.
Fitting the top and bottom fabric frames
installing fabric on side panel frame
I'm going to be building your wall very soon but I plan to do a CIH screen. I'll be using the DIY Seymour AT mat'l. My thought was to stretch this directly onto the 2 uprights to the desired scope
size of 120". Then I would mount the upper, lower, left and right panels just as you have. I would then build 2 additional panels to manually mask the 16:9 screen when necessary. My thinking behind this method is that the screen will have an effective thickness of 0" so that when I place the 16:9 panels on, they won't be protruding beyond the 4 "permanent" panels. My one concern, though, is how would I attach these other two panels?
Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions please...
Thanks a lot,
BTW, I plan to start a build thread this weekend. Really getting excited!
If this is a good idea in general
