I would like to take credit for it but using the 2x2's and the hinge is the part that olddog contributed. It's brilliant!

I'm sorry that I wasn't able to attend that hike since I was working that weekend. You will have to come down later this year for a hang on the forest where I live/work. There will be one or two that I will do in the fall/winter and then late February will be the "Sherpa hang" which involves a little bit of hiking (a couple of miles plus an unloaded fun hike on Saturday) and dutch ovens, good food, campfire, friends having a great weekend. Florida is blessed with a great group of hangers!
I took a little nap in it this morning and it worked like a dream. I'm adding two last pictures to this thread and then I'm done taking pictures of my baby
And ready for their next adventure with hiking poles for perspective. You can see in the tripod on the right that the pole fits perfectly inside for an even more compact packing of the rig.
Next up... sewing a bag to carry it in
