Try this. Hey dad, I'm thinking about making a hammock stand. If you were going to build one out of wood that can be easily transported,stong,etc.. what would it look like? Then let him pay for and build it! That ought to be one sweet,custom built hammock stand!! Proud son,proud father,happy hanger
