I have been asked to build a wall mounted projector screen for a small church. The screen will be 100 inches wide by 75 inches tall. The want two doors, hinged on each side to cover the screen when closed. My concern to making a door 50 inches wide by 75 inches tall that will not warp. Suggestions?

I was thinking the same thing shopguryl did – make 2 bifold doors, or accordion type doors that when opened will utilize the least space on the wall – which could also be a sale pitch for you to use.

I was thinking about a torsion box design for the doors. Maybe, 2 inches thick with cherry plywood skin. I like the bifold idea. They want to use the sides to help control light from windows. The bifolds would not stick out very far. I bought about a dozen piano hinges at an auction several months ago for $5. Might have been a sign?
