    Woke up yesterday and said to myself "I want to make a 4 Seasons Tarp"

    I woke up yesterday morning and for some reason I wanted to make a tarp. So after look through the fabrics I had on hand (you may have a Dutchware problem is you randomly have 8 yds of woodland camo silArgon on hand and all the dutch bling laying around) I went to work making a 4 seasons tarp with a 12 ft ridge line. After spending 6 hours working on it Saturday and 2 hour today this is the final product.

    Good looking tarp Meckie. Just wondering how many pumpkin pies I would have to make to get one of those.

    I like the way it came out but after 8 hr I learned that I much prefer being behind a welding hood then a sewing machine. Good thing we make a metal hammock stand

    I have not weighed it yet, so I'm not sure.

    The stand is the hammock stand we sell on our site with the extention piece in it to get an extra 2 ft. If I didn't put the extention piece in I would not have been able to close the doors with the rl of the tarp being 12 ft long. If you do a search on the forum for Hammeck Stand there should be a few threads that pop up.
