    Bridge Hammock plans

    Ok I am contemplating taking a go at a bridge hammock. Does anyone have tutorials, patterns, or designs to pass on? Suggestions for materials, or advice on construction/material usage?

    Anything would be greatly appreciated.

    Not too bad - I am discovering my lack of geometric knowledge to be quite hampering.

    No geometry needed for the Peoples Bridge Hammock. Suspension "triangle" is just 2 lines and a spreader bar. No catenary curves - just straight edges.

    I can vouch for the Bic pattern. His Utube vids are great. I used his basic pattern and widened and lengthened it. Used corner moldings to make the cat curves . Turned out great

    WV’s People’s Bridge Hammock is what I’ve settled on and love it in terms of comfort, customization, and easy of build.

    I used the Bic pattern and I think it needs to be widened at least. If I were make another one I’d make the whole thing 10% bigger all around

    What is the general consensus on spreader bars? What material? Where have you purchased? any new updates?
