    Here's a look at my version of a DIY hammock: The Jerry5

    And Hawk-eye's version of the same. Good pics in post #16.

    +1 on the Jerry5, with the added info from Tim's post, it is all there, very roomy and comfortable.
    Mine weighed 21 ozs with whoopies attached when completed, including hook and loop closures for the bugnet on both sides.

    I would like to add bug netting to my DIY hammock. Where can I just get some mesh?

    Scott Littlefield has a diy section on his web store at Backwoods Daydreamer Gear that sells it.

    You can also get mesh from numerous other sites:

    Outdoor Wilderness Fabrics

    I've also found several types of mesh locally at Joann fabric & hancock fabric.
    I put "real" mosquito netting from Hancock on my FrankenBird. I think it was about $2.50/yd, and over 70" wide. I've also got some tulle in two colors and some other really fine cloth that resembles no-seeum netting... all from local shops, and all for less than $3/yd.
    I would expect that most local fabric stores carry some type of mosquito netting.

    Also check your local Army - Navy store. Many carry mosquito netting, that's where I bought mine.
