Hello all,

I got tired of searching through a million threads to try to find the handful of super helpful, instruction-packed DIY project threads. I thought I would compile a list to make my life a little bit easier. Since I did the leg work, I figured I might as well share the fruits of my labor with you all.

Let me know what I missed!

Yep, it looks great. But do you realize what you've done--you've expanded the DIY list of every one on this forum--you've put a bunch of overtime on Scott at diygearsupply and others with materials--you've ratcheted up the price of used thread injectors--you've put many marriages into stress as we try to convince spouses how much we 'need' another piece of gear--you've forced us to consider a host of questions and possibilities that we could have delayed or avoided altogether. But no! Put it all in one spot so that we could find it easily and see what we're missing. I'm just not sure how to react.:lol:

I've been lurking a while, as you can probably tell. I'm more of a learner than a teacher at this point, but I figured I'd give back what I can.

Also, I apologize the those whose lives or wallet I've negatively affected. I figure if I'm going down I might as well take some people with me :lol:

Awesome list bro. I do have one to add. Last year I did a detailed video on how to make a DIY No Sew Poncho Liner Underquilt. It's up on my YouTube channel https://youtu.be/vsWOelVXuoI and I do have a post on HammockForums as well here https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/showthread.php/100931-How-To-Make-A-Poncho-Liner-Under-Quilt-or-quot-PLUQ-quot-An-Instructional-Video

Thanks bro. Yay. They are really easy to make and not very expensive. And of course you can slide in some additional insulation in between the layers if needed. Thanks for watching and subscribing.
