I've been looking for a new project so I think I'm going to try Roadrunnr72's idea.
As I am looking to build out one of these myself, is there a recommendation on the gather (middle out, W, etc) - Futhermore, and more notable on this topic - JustJeff in his illustrations shows pulling the corners out in the gather to tighten the sides. Anyone care to share pros or cons on this approach? If you use this approach, how much to you typical take out... 6", so a total of 12" on each long side.
