Dude that is some mighty fine handy work and the pictures look really cool. the lighting isn't natural light but it has a very cool mellow feel. I fell relaxed just looking at the pictures of the hammock chair/Hammock.

Most of the time, this stuff comes from a method I like to call “Development via Blunder Recovery”, the gear develops itself and I’m just along for the ride. The WR-II is a perfect example, the insulation wasn’t supposed to be removable, I tried to make the new chair so “Ultra-light” that it ended up being a kid sized version, I tried it out but it was “fat guy in a little coat”. Now, I could have broken out the shop-Vac and done some “feather retrieval” to start again but “Blunder Recover” and a well planted seed of thought from Jazilla took the project in a new (and better) direction.
Really liking how this is working out!
