This is incredible [o]TTeR! I have the skills to make the stand fine but I have never sewn anything before. Thanks to your excellent instructions, I will attempt to make this my first DIY ! If you ever decide to sell these I will be beating down the door to be your first customer
Also you are an amazing photographer. I am an amateur landscape and wildlife photographer aspiring to go pro. Your works inspires me! Keep it up sir!

So I managed over the last couple of days to put together a Micro Beast out of things i had around the house. It's made form an old gazebo wind wall and half of a 600 fill pillow. It turned out well, although it takes a while to deflate/inflate because the fabric isn't as breathable as I would like. I'll get a couple of pictures up soon.
Being a photographer (hobby, Pro & back to hobby) for 20+ years, I’ve had some time to practice, hearing that the work is inspirational is a great complement, I’m humbled by it thanks my Friend.
Finished my hammock chair and stand, and I'm very happy with it. I was toying with the idea of getting a traveler-sized hammock for day hikes, but thought that would be overkill. A chair is an excellent starter project for those with little or no sewing experience - 4 straight seams: what could be simpler?
The fabric is Lens Mills discount desert digital nylon. Finished size is about 54" long, 40" wide. Packs down to about pop-can size, suspension included. Stand is made from waste 2x4s from a home improvement box store (free).
Any road followed precisely to its end leads precisely nowhere. Climb the mountain just a little bit to test that it's a mountain. From the top of the mountain, you cannot see the mountain.
That. Is. Awesome.
What a great idea, defiantly going to be my next project after the turtledog stand!
The PDF plans are very easy to follow as well.
Still work in progress... But it's together and supports me.
Perfect for watching my 4ft wide "telly" screen.
Cheers again for the plans, they were great.
I have two chairs/stands in my media room and agree, they are perfect for watching TV...with one exception! Staying awake
