    Very nice! I love the fact that it matches your tent. You could call it camo in the land of the Smurfs!

    I didn't plan on matching the tent, it just happened that way. The black section is a footbox. I ran out of the blue.
    You're welcome.

    So is the footbox somewhat of a semi-circle as opposed to the usual triangle or is it just the camera angle?

    It is the usual triangle. Funny camera angle.
    There are very few problems we can solve ourselves, but there is almost nothing we cannot solve together.

    Most often when someone says they can't, they are unwilling to try.

    Well done DIYer. That foot box is interesting, hammock minds want to know!

    Very interesting. Your funny angle has given me an idea, has anyone tried making a footbox just off-center of the hammock, in its floor?

    Thanks!

    The footbox is a right triangle, 22" legs. It's attached 18" from the end of the hammock and is made from DL ripstop I picked up from Hancock Fabrics.

    I roll hemmed the edges all the way around, and ran three lines of stitching through to attach to the hammock itself.

    It would be hard to maintain the structural integrity of the hammock doing that.
