Key points to make sure you do are the grosgrain loops on the two ends by the whipping. These provide structural integrity for the footbox and shelf. I used the one piece footbox/shelf pattern, but changed it by putting a radius in the footbox, instead of the big triangle. I think it was something like a 4" radius if I remember correctly. Using the 68" wide fabric was perfect because I could trim off 8" for the full length to make the piece for the zipper that attaches to the bug netting. Another difference is I build the whole thing, lay the ridgeline and loops in, then whip the hammock. This brings everything together nicely
I am getting ready to put together my own DIY "WarBird" and I am confused by what you meant by grosgrain loops on the ends? I haven't seen these mentioned in any of the directions I've looked at and am just wondering what you were referring to. Sorry if this is something that should be obvious.
