How to Make the PERFECT Wooden GM Screen for Dungeons and Dragons

How to Make the PERFECT Wooden GM Screen for Dungeons and Dragons

I recently started DM’ing a new Dungeons and Dragons campaign, so I decided to make life easier by designing and building the perfect DM Screen.

Hopefully this can give all you fellow Dungeon Masters out there some ideas for how to make your D&D campaigns run just a little bit smoother.

Thanks for watching!

    This is by far your best video. The editing seems to have leveled up faster than your DnD players.

    So are you making these to order, or….? Amazing work!!



  3. JustYourCasual UpsideDownMaskedCaptain on February 9, 2023 at 4:37 am

    that is magnificent, as a DM i’d love to have that.

    That was really nice.



  5. Amy Mitchell on February 9, 2023 at 4:40 am

    Kyle this is amazing!!

    VERY NICE JOB! it seems like a good design, however IMO the ‘zigzag’ hinge design is a bit odd. IMO a DM screen should ‘circle’ around the DM when it sits on a table. concave angles, if you will. love the design tho.

    Wood working and nerd shit. I’m glad YouTube showed me your channel



  8. Harmony on February 9, 2023 at 4:43 am

    Suppurb : )

    thus really makes me want to try D and D again!



  10. Derek Morin on February 9, 2023 at 4:44 am

    Its here!!!



  11. Luke Rosenberg on February 9, 2023 at 4:46 am

    Absolutely great screen! So glad you’re making videos again!



  12. Mung Bean on February 9, 2023 at 4:51 am

    Is it possible to get measurements? I would love to make my own



  13. Alfredo on February 9, 2023 at 4:52 am

    Would you take orders for that?

    Very cool looking! How has it held up?
    I’m not a woodworker by any means, but have heard the "don’t glue pieces crossgrain unless you want a crack" enough times to always pay attention to it in others’ projects and be curious of how much leniency there actually is. Please note that I’m not calling you out, just lookin to learn where the limits are so as not to end up overthinking these kinds of projects.

    The theory is, that once the wood on the main panel dries, it will want to shrink across the grain (widthwise). The one vertical framing strips is glued across the panels grain but the framing will not shrink along its grain (lengthwise), causing tension to build in the panel and potentially resulting in a crack to form next to the strip. I’d be surprised if the glue joint itself failed.
    If one wanted to avoid this conundrum completely, the framing would have to be left floating at least on one end.

    I would absolutely buy one of these if you started selling them! But I’m sure the magnet cutting isn’t worth it XD



  16. Kevin Noorman on February 9, 2023 at 4:57 am

    I would love to buy one if you start selling



  17. Monte Cristo on February 9, 2023 at 4:57 am

    Not sure why this only has 652 views… but I’m happy to give it one more. This was a great build



  18. Kevin P on February 9, 2023 at 4:57 am

    Shut up and take my money 😭



  19. Brandon Nolan on February 9, 2023 at 4:58 am

    What finish did you use on the maple to allow dry erase marker use?



  20. Ferrariferg on February 9, 2023 at 4:58 am

    Do you have any plans or rough dimensions for this? I’ve looked at a lot of screens (rather build one than buy one) and this seems to be the best one so far without getting too wild. I’ve never DMed before so I like the idea of being able to easily change things out on the fly, and the players have a place for things that they need to check regularly. I love the initiative tiles too. Helps with tabletop clutter when playing in a small space.



  21. Evan Houle on February 9, 2023 at 5:01 am

    Looks amazing! Glad to see you uploading again, can’t wait to make a guest appearance 🙂



  22. Ben Schager on February 9, 2023 at 5:01 am

    Now that is fuckin’ slick!



  23. Robyn Chagun on February 9, 2023 at 5:01 am

    This is amazing!! I’m not even a DM and I want this screen



  24. Greg McCormack on February 9, 2023 at 5:06 am

    Oh its my turn? Lololol. Well done Sir! very nice screen



  25. Matteo Politi on February 9, 2023 at 5:08 am

    Can I kindly ask you the file with the tables that you see in the first panel of your screen (7.53)? I really need a file to enclose in a panel that encloses the main tables/rules. TY 😊



  26. Josepher on February 9, 2023 at 5:08 am

    Damn, bro!
    Alright, I’m subbing and checking out the rest of your vids too.
    Keep on kicking ass. I hope this channel becomes huge.



  27. Kyle Merriman on February 9, 2023 at 5:10 am

    Quite a few people have asked for dimensions so that they can build their own screens, so I’ve put together a Google Drive folder with some basic measurements:

    Enjoy!



  28. James Black on February 9, 2023 at 5:10 am

    Nice



  29. Jonas Hansen on February 9, 2023 at 5:10 am

    This looks tertific. If I didn’t DM digitally, I’d need myself one of these.



  30. Chagunable on February 9, 2023 at 5:11 am

    Wow! Now I want an upgrade! Love the little Easter eggs!



  31. Sir Cheese on February 9, 2023 at 5:13 am

    I have never dm’d so I honestly wasn’t sure what you were making, but that end result was soooo cool 😀



  32. Nick Merriman on February 9, 2023 at 5:20 am

    This is so sick! We’ll just let those Barovia map spoilers slide 🤣



  33. ViolentFrog on February 9, 2023 at 5:22 am

    Maybe an angle grinder cutoff wheel for the steel next time



  34. Baby Beel on February 9, 2023 at 5:23 am

    WHY DO YOU HAVE SO FEW SUBSCRIBERS???



  35. Liam Cage on February 9, 2023 at 5:25 am

    Very nice. If only I had tools and talent 😉



  36. Marvin Joosten on February 9, 2023 at 5:28 am

    Seems like Wyrmwood took some inspiration as well🤔



  37. MrSpartacus575 on February 9, 2023 at 5:29 am

    Phenomenal end result and your editing is superb on this! I’d love a screen like this for my games.



  38. Matoso on February 9, 2023 at 5:31 am

    This
    This is good
    This is an amazing DM screen and I will be taking notes myself for when I make my own

    Good job!



  39. Tropicoboy on February 9, 2023 at 5:31 am

    I got to build myself a dm screen too, been meaning to get around to it. But as a woodworker there is always a million projects



  40. Fiona TuckwellFionaT on February 9, 2023 at 5:31 am

    Can you make zeros swords
