120" Glacier White Screen
Built my screen today. Nothing earth shattering but I figured I would post.
120" diagonal screen. Glacier White (GW) from Seymour AV.
First off- I wouldn't staple this again. The stuff has no stretch. It was a pain to work with. I'm happy with the end result, but I would probably go with grommets next time. Also, they cut it with just over two inches to spare lengthwise, which meant I only had an inch to grab and tension on each end, which wasn't easy. Also it means my frame is inside the decorative frame. I had wanted to build it oversized and then put a decorative frame on top. Just in case the fame outline shows up after assembly. Next time I'd order a bigger piece, and go with grommets/O rings.
Shop pics: I started with 5/4 poplar. I had 12' boards to work with. Cut 4 pieces 2.5" wide. Two for the long ends, two sides from another piece and two middle supports from the last. The frame was planed flat to 1 1/8" thick. The middle supports are 1" so there's no chance they will show up.
The GW doesn't lie flat over a sharp edge, so I had to put a 1/8" radius round over on the outside of the frame. I also put a 1" round over on the inside just in case the inside of the frame tried to crease the material during assembly or if the frame didn't sit perfectly flat I wouldn't have a sharp edge showing.
