    An idea, four months, and a nap.

    Hi. I found this site when I first got the bug to build a hammock, and found lots of great ideas here. I just finished my first hammock today, and even caught a quick nap. What started in July finished just in time for winter. I plan on posting construction pictures and look forward to sharing plans, dimensions, and materials. The part of being a DIY'er I like best is the process and the freedom to use my own ideas. - - - Glad to be hanging out here.

    Welcome aboard from Florida Patrick. That's what I love about DIY also, take your idea, play with it, post it and see how it evolves. Most DIYers can't leave well enough alone.
    Most of us end up poorer here but richer for being here. Olddog, Fulltime hammocker, 365 nights a year.
