Hello All!

New to this forum, but have been active on AVS. I posted this there, thought you might like to see it here.

I have created a portable outdoor screen, similar to others here. It is approximately 8X12, sits on 4ft legs and the screen material is black out cloth. It is easy to assemble and dis-assemble, lightweight and easy to transport. I took most of it to Wisconsin last week!

Had the wife sew the BO cloth and I cut all the PVC. All the PVC dry fits.  The only improvemets I've made since taking the pictures are:

1) Changed the middle two bottom connectors to 90 degree cross pieces to add additional legs.
2) Added two 10ft back supports to the middle screen supports.
 
I have pictures on my website:

I'll be happy to answer questions, either here or via PM.

Regards,
Tom

How did you keep it from moving with the breeze?

Calvin -

The frame is solid as a rock. It is supported from the back by the two 10ft pieces attached to the middle supports in back of the screen and they are pounded into the ground with 10 inch spikes. The sides are supported by the three support lines (that's 3 on each side to form a triangle - front, back and side) with the tensioning blocks (like a tent).  The screen was measured to fit the frame and is pretty tight. Any movement in the screen is hardly noticable, and neither is the seam in the middle once the movie starts. I'm thinking of adding some velcro to the screen (along the bottom and one side) to tighen it up even more once it's in place.

I'll try to get better pictures the next time I set it up. We were pretty busy with the rest of the picnic going on, so we only got we could get at the time. Next time, it will just be the movie, so we should get some better pics of it going up.
