Hey everybody…finished my first hammock about 3-4weeks ago. Wanted to post some pics sooner but also wanted to combine pics into one post.
DIY gathered end:
1.5oz Ripstop from Backyard Daydreamer
Poly thread from Backyard Daydreamer
My trusty Kenmore thread injector
Gathered end using Knotty’s method
5 ½’ straps made from seatbelt webbing from tttgear
DIY whoopie slings from 7/64 Amsteel and a DIY soft shackle on the head end.
Started by using biners from Backyard Daydreamer
Hit pay dirt when my local gun shop gave me sections of aluminum arrow tubing for free…tried the marlin spike hitch method with toggles…I much prefer this method and will probably use it.
My trusty workspace with Kenmore machine
She's hangin'...yee haw!
It is very comfy...I think I fell asleep after I took this picture
Thanks to everybody for all the great ideas…DIYin this project was an awesome experience...I can’t wait until I get to put some posts in the ground this Spring as we have no trees on our property…yet.
Oh Yeah...I also just finished work on a unique “underpad” project that I will post pics on when I get them together…
(I don't know if it's just my computer or what but I can't see the pics in my post...if you can't either just click on my gallery to check them out)
