I wanted to have a set up in my garden to hang from my hammock and enjoy the sun (twice a year here in Scotland) and also to help fine tune my set up. I also want to be able to set my tarp up as well.
I tried a wooden frame set up I found on here somewhere but found it to big and bulky and a bit of an eye sore.
I am currently thinking along the lines of two poles inserted into the ground at an angle (about 500mm length)and flush with the ground. Then two longer poles (around 2500mm) of a slightly smaller diameter to slide down and into these. This would allow me to remove the longer poles when not in use.
I am thinking of using scaffold poles for the longer ones as these should provide good strength and I'll need to try and find poles for the ground.
Something like this (the yellow bit is the larger diameter poles concreted into the ground)
Any way any ideas or tips appreciated or even show us your set up.
