    JSW,

    Very nifty idea - what did you make the frame out of ? Would it have been possible to rout the sheet of MDF and have the screen flush with it ?

    It should look seriously cool when it's on the wall - the screenshot of Nat Imbruglia (MP3 player software ??) really is impressive.

    My inclination ~(if I was lucky enough to have such a wicked toy to play with.....) would be to paint the MDF and Frame the same colour - make the frame "disappear".


    All the best,


    Sean G.

    Thanks for your comments Sean :)

    It would look great flush in the wall but too much work.

    Flush in the MDF wouldn't be possible as the screen is actually quite deep. It does actually look pretty good as it is, better in the flesh than in the pics.

    The frame round the screen is made from a length of decorative wood finishes that B & Q sell, just had to cut to size with mitre saw.

    Just want a screen saver of some prints so it looks like a picture when not in use.

    Oh btw the software is apejukebox from here: http://www.apejukebox.com/index.html

    If I get bored of it on the wall I may buy a coffee table and mount it in that ;)

    Didn't someone else here buy one of these screens too ?

    Maybe he is bored with his and will let yer have it ;)

    JSW,

    Absoluuutely ! - My queries were those of an inveterate "tinkerer" - I think its a brilliant job and it looks super - I'd love to have one!!!!! . I've seen people in the office with screen savers which do slideshows of art prints etc - which would look super cool; by the time I got around to looking for one, admin had reset the system so you couldn't personalise it too much - serious paranoia about downloading viruses.

    The wallpaper in the picture with the screen shot on your projector screen would be pretty easy on the eye........:blush: .....When I showed Mrs Ritz the job you had done (V. impressed,btw) she pointed to the lady on your desktop and said "boys..........typical..." :D

    All the best,


    Sean G.
