gmcttr: We must have been sawing sticks at the same time!!!
I tried to make my stand with forest driftwood pieces, but couldn't find enough long and straight ones. I have stick envy! Yours looks great!
Thanks, Turtlelady, for a great design! What I really love about your design is, not just that's it's portable, but that it's easily repeatable. I'm going to make stick stands for all my favorite spots on my property where I haven't been able to hang before. I'll just leave the stands in place and carry a "lounging hammock" with me when I walk in the woods with my cats. Thanks again!
P.S. The ridge pole on this one is an old TV antenna mast!
