    Search for the "turtlelady" or "turtledog" stands. Both work very well.

    Consult the "hammock calculator" for the correct pole height based on your chosen length.

    What kind of hammock do you anticipate using?

    Does it need to be a stand? A couple of pressure treated 6x6 cemented posts the appropriate distance apart will get the job done too. You just give up portability.

    Cheers

    I saw this hammock stand today and really liked it for a suitable multi-use yard accessory. I'm even thinking of making a 3-sided or 4-sided version that would go over a garden area, etc.

    Chris! These are great pics! Do you have any others and may I share them on my website: http://theultimatehang.com? What was your experience building them?

    This has always been a favorite of mine, if I had the yard space. I like the clean lines and how easy it would be to make. They did an excellant job on their blog documenting everything about it.

    Those are beautiful! I think I have a better chance of convincing my wife to let me do something like that in our yard over some cemented 6x6s!
