    Way to go man. You've conquered silnylon and have a great tarp to prove it.

    Nice post, thanks for showing the steps from one end to the other. You make it seem almost too easy. I may have to give it a try.

    Great job!
    I went with three or four paper models, and two variations of the cardboard before I was pleased. This is the same size tarp I will be looking to order in black cuben from Hammock Gear with part of my tax return (I hope).

    Regardless of how you go about making a piece of gear, be willing to learn from your mistakes.

    The price was right. Thank you for the kind words.

    That was fast. Best of luck. If it turns out anything like what I hear the rest of your gear does, I'm sure it will be great. I'm glad I could help.

    I am proud, thank you.

    Well, depending on the size you were shooting for, I've added more dimensions for assistance.

    I hope those who camp with me will enjoy it. I know I will until I get a cuben version, then my friends without gear can.

    I think all of my dimensions are up. Give it a go. If you need help, I'll be around.

    Thanks for the dimensions . I will be shooting for a 12X10 as my hammock is around 9'5" and i'm looking for some extra living space. I like the idea of how you modeled it up before construction. I will have to try that instead of the shooting from the hip method I usually go with.

    OrionX, What is your ridgeline length? Is it 9'5"? My hammock ridgeline length is 90".

    Ahh whoops, I see what I did there, no the ridge line on my DIY is 94" and if I had to guess my Hennessy Explr is about 98" sooo 8X10 would be plenty big enough... I guess i hadn't had enough coffee before I started doing hammock math!

    Yeah, my hammock is 9' long with the 90" ridgeline. Being inside this tarp felt cavernous compared to any of the tents I used to use.

    Good stuff man, I have made a cat cut tarp out of a poly tarp for my first go at it. It works pretty well, but I got a little wet during a some sideways rain...that made me decided to attempt the tarp w/ doors. Once I get it going I will make sure I take pictures. I hope it comes out as well as yours
