Step 6: Putting it all together
As you can see I still need to do a little work on getting the canvas to be nice and tight, but other than that I am very happy with the result!
Of course do not throw this away when you need a different size, remember we didn't glue all the joints that means you can take it apart and reconfigure it! Recycle!
Some tips from the comments section:
- Spray some water on the canvas then use a hair dryer to dry the canvas, this will shrink the material and make the canvas nice and tight.
- You can also use these as a projector screen, pick some nice white fabric!
- You could give the panels a nautical look by installing grommets every 3 or 4 inches around the canvas edge and then lashing it onto the frame with thin nylon rope (venetian blind cording would work). This would eliminate the sagging canvas problem.
