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.

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