    I want to build a 135 diagonal (66" x117") projector screen.

    Can 1x2 lumber be used to build the frame with extra peace of wood in the middle of the frame for more support, or is it too weak for this size of screen?

    Depends what your screen material is.Fabric?Plastic sheet?You could add a triangular brace to the 4 corners.

    Not strong enough. I would use 1 X 4 or 2 X 3 pine.
