    My DIY Hammock Stand

    Thought I would share some photos of the hammock stand I made about a month ago. Thanks to all that shared their DIY hammock stand projects so I could build mine.



    Thanks,
    Bob

    I like the double clevis connection for the pole. Not sure I've seen that before.

    i'd like to know more about the way you attach the ridge pole. I ended up using several wraps of paracord but your method is much simpler. How much weight are you putting on that?

    Hi Pigfoot!

    Actually it is quite portable. Everything is in 6 foot sections.
