Making a fly screen.

I hate mosquitos. But I like fresh air from an open window. So I need fly screens.

Here's how to make a simple fly screen:

For a simple rectangular from we need 4 pieces of wood, the corners cut on a 45 degree angle. Mark the wood.

Cut the wood.

And see to it that things fit nicely.

Then get some metal corners and screws.

Mark the holes.

And pre-drill the holes for the screws a little bit so that the wood doesn't split when screwing in it.

Put on the 4 metal corners.

Get your mesh and a tacker (staple gun).

Attach the mesh and there you go, a fly screen!

Works in prison cells as well! ;-)
