    You wouldn't want to sell a few of those, would ya? Bet you'd have a market alright. And that 22 0z weight is right about the same as my no net Claytor with stock suspension.

    Man, a bridge or a Claytor as needed- great concept and great work.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Well Grizz, you've done it again. Very clever, flexible use, nicely executed.
    I'm constantly impressed with the imaginative minds of the hammock community.

    Great! If it feels as good as it looks, you have a winner!

    I remember the "cool" guys from Hi School. What they did was the opposite from what my momma taught me, and you know what? That is still sometimes the case 40+ years later. However.... what you have created is "way" cool.

    I think you underestimate the audience for the bridge hammock. Even tho I may not have, yet, tackled this project, I have kept up with all that is going on, especially your posts. One day soon I hope that this project makes it to the top of my to-do list. Til then, don't think that no comments mean no interest, rather no comments mean that you are so far ahead of everybody else, that we haven't caught up yet.

    thanks for the nice comments everyone.

    Dutch--I've been doing my day job during the day, retaining wall by sun-lit evening, and hammock design and sewing by candle-light. I'll be at that wall all summer...

    BB58 --- Considering how cheaply the Claytor is made, this model could be produced by someone who is fast and efficient at all aspects of sewing. I spent a lot of time measuring fabric, and cutting it. That's the kind of thing that people who build hammocks have down fast and pat. The key difference between this hammock and a Claytor style is the way the two bodies come together at the flat-felled seam, with yet another piece in there that has a suspension curve and a channel for some cord.


    A word of explanation about my perverted sense of humor...the whinny part at the beginning of the post is all tongue-in-cheek. I know there has been a lot of interest in the bridge hammock at the hangs I've attended. I'm doing it because I enjoy it, and the thing is really really comfortable. The new one in bridge mode is the best yet I've made comfort-wise. The spreader bars are a little closer together (6' apart rather than 7') and the fabric under a bar is a little more narrow than before.

    One change I know I'll make, perhaps even on this prototype, is to put in an opening so I can inspect the stitches on the suspension curve. I've had no trouble with my lightweight bridge and the stitches on the cord channel, but that's weight-bearing sewing and needs to be observable.

    Look for a user's guide to build one in late June or early July. My life is pretty frantic between now and then.

    The bad part is I fell for it hook, line and sinker. Stopped reading in the middle to answer some kid questions and when I came back to finish... tada!

    Great job on the snow job.

    Even greater job on the hammock. Very forward thinking and inovative.

    And thanks for the chuckles Grizz.
