I've decided to put together a backyard version of turtle lady's hammock stand and I want to put together a concise list of materials. Having never built one I figured I could use some collaborative help.
The tools I have to work with: skil, hammer, tape, speed square, 300 series dremel, drill, my two hands, and a couple years of putting together post and stick frame buildings.
What immediately springs to mind:
1 or 2? Fence top rails
So I guess the leaves the hardwear. I want the stand to be 5-6' tall and about 13' if that length is doable to accommodate tarps and long hammocks. So what sort of hinges? And suggested hardware? Fasteners? Readily available at my local Lowe's is a big plus.
