DIY Projection Screen Guide


  • A sheet of projection screen material
  • Wood planks for the frame
  • Corner brackets
  • Screws
  • Staple gun and staples
  • Ruler or measuring tape
  • Saw (handsaw or power saw)
  • Pencil or marker


  1. Measure the size of your projection screen. Determine the desired height and width of your screen, taking into account the aspect ratio of your projector and the size of the room where it will be installed.

  2. Cut the wood planks to size. Using a saw, cut four pieces of wood to the desired length for the sides of the frame, and four pieces to the desired width for the top and bottom of the frame. Make sure the corners are square.

  3. Assemble the frame. Connect the four pieces of wood for the sides of the frame using the corner brackets. Repeat the process for the top and bottom pieces of wood.

  4. Attach the projection screen material to the frame. Stretch the projection screen material over the frame and use the staple gun to secure it to the back of the frame. Make sure the material is tight and smooth, with no wrinkles or bubbles.

  5. Install the screen. Once the projection screen material is securely attached to the frame, it's time to install the screen. Choose a location for the screen, making sure there is enough space for it and that it is centered in front of the projector. Hang the screen from the wall or ceiling using screws.

  6. Test the screen. Finally, test the screen by projecting an image onto it. Make any necessary adjustments to the position of the screen to ensure the image is centered and aligned.

And that's it! With these steps, you can build a fixed frame projector screen that will provide a high-quality viewing experience for years to come.
