    DYI Projects - Gathered End Hammock & Tarp Doors

    Received my order from Ripstop By The Roll. I plan on making a some tarp doors and a gathered end hammock.

    My goal for the hammock is to have a no net, reasonably light weight and as comfy as I can get hammock.

    I can decide if I should just make a simple square platform gathered end or a trapezoid/parellelogram w/footbox (similar to TZBrown's idea - https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/...k-with-Footbox).

    It will definitely be a double layer 1.1 oz because this will improve the use of a pad for added insulation when needed, and I think be more comfortable than single 1.9. I'm also thinking of using a structural ridge line.

    Any thoughts or recommendations on a gathered end hammock design?

    A simple rectangular hammock could always be modified later into a more exotic design if you wished. I think I'd start there, and if it didn't work you could explore different designs.

    I agree, especially for a first project. Simpler is better when you're just starting out.
