DIY Screen Frame Suggestions

Just checking on what frame styles some of you have built and what pro's/con's are associated with each. Right now I'm thinking of making my frame from poplar (wood) and adding hardboard as a support piece (a "T" shape). To attach the screen I will be cutting a narrow grove that the screen will be inserted to and a rubber installed behind it. Same as a screen door.

I've considered aluminum and other methods.

What's worked for you and what hasn't?

Re: DIY Screen Frame Suggestions

I built mine from Extruded Aluminum T channel. It is very nice and strong, and went together in about one hour. The con to it is it is more expensive than using wood, but still less expensive than using a store bought frame.
