Made some great progress towards finishing up the home theater last night by building the frame for my screen. I based my screen frame around a howto located at this site. My frame does not use any support bracing to help save on the weight and honestly the wood could be straighter. Measuring 79×45, I’ll be able to get an absolute maximum size of 90″ diagonal when viewing “widescreen” formatted material. This also gives me a maximum of 74″ diagonal for regular 4:3 content. Not bad for a total project cost of about $600.
Read on for pics and other info.
Other than being an inexpensive project for what it is this has been a lot of fun, just because I get to build things and the results are incredibly fun.
Here are some links to pics of the finished screen.
