    Great stand Gary R, had been contemplating something similar for the two granddaughters.

    What wood is this one made out of?

    It also occurs to me that this being only 10 or so feet long would also make an ideal indoor stand too as it is can be made relatively decorative with different woods and it doesn't have the bottom beam back breaker in the event of a catastrophic hammock failure.

    Cheers

    Yeah I did not like the idea of the Tailbone Breaker under me.
    This one is just Douglas Fir studs that I stained Dark Walnut..
    The stain helps hide the errors made when throwing it together.

    It was a rough draft for an Inside stand.

    Only hardwood I used on it are the 4 pins

    With one simple mod you could make a similar stand that will hold both of them at once

    That's nice. I like the design.

    Since I'm slowly converting friends into hangers, I've been contemplating adding posts to my backyard for when we want to have a BBQ/Backyard Camp Out, but something like this might be an option as well. I would make it a tad wider stance, but beyond that, it's a great looking piece considering it looks to be pine and plywood! I've certainly got plenty of that around!
