    DIY Hammock stand

    Howdy. I'm sure this topic has been beaten to death somewhere, but i can't find it using the search feature, and google doesn't have a wide variety of articles, so i'm turning to you guys. I just got a house and i want to set up my hammock on the back porch, but i want something cheap and rugged. any suggestions or links? thanks

    I second Catavarie on recommending Turtlelady's bamboo stand. It's a long thread, but worth reading through it. Stand works very well; setup & stow-away is real easy and it is quite compact for storage too.

    +1 on the Turtle Lady version of a stand. I used the OldDog version and made mine out of 2x3's, plus hinges, hardware and shackle bolts. I've had both my Hennessy and my DIY hammocks on it and it's plenty stable with my 230# on it.

    I like the way Papa Smurf's looks here.
    There are links to other hammock stand posts too.
