    A few updates this morning. Made longer whoopies for all four corners to allow better adjustment.

    Sitting mode (Seat whoopies at 44", Back whoopies at 35"):


    Recliner mode (Seat whoops at 44", Back whoops at 49"):


    Hanging between the trees. Distance between trees only limited by how short or long your whoopies allow and how high you can reach (for distant trees).
    This span is approximately 15':

    Dynamic testing of the suspension. Makes for a fun swing:




    Next step: clone and refine the seat in light weight material. Will likely make the back portion of the chair longer to provide better head support while reclining. Any other thoughts?
