Projection Screen is done!

Someone stole my microphone pod from the spray booth. After forty minutes on the rotary polisher, it looked altogether much better, and I'm rather angry that someone stole it.

(If you, the thief, are reading this, please be noted that I'm going to pull your pancreas out through your nose with a butterknife.)

On the plus side, I've built a rather nifty 76" projection screen out of some blackout cloth and "stretcher bars" - interlocking wood bars that artists use to strech canvas. I paid under $30 for the whole thing, including fabric.

There are a few advantages to this method: The screen is stretched tight and smooth, and is very light. All that's required for assembly is a stapler and scissors; no power tools are needed.
