Grizzly Adams has some great instructional videos on youtube I would check out if I were you. Make yourself a Grizz Bridge
When I first started on the journey to comfortable sleeping in the woods, I spent a whole lot of time looking at each manufacturers versions of a 'hammock'. With each of them it was - 'like that feature, don't like that part'. I just couldn't find one that I liked everything about.
Then I found the Grizz Bridge - and then I realized that with only a couple of very minor changes, just because I can - my 'absolutely perfect for me' hammock was very possible.
Be prepared to watch each segment of Grizz's construction video's multiple times and have a notepad handy.
Oh yea, try as I might and as good at math as I am, the string on the wall trick for doing the cat cuts worked easier for me - course I also had access to french curves and my seamstresses flex curve tools.
Ya i realy like the grizz bridge my self the others just dont look like anything i want to mess with guess i will work on watchen the video and taken notes. I guess diy hammock maken is alot of r& d.
Been working on the grizz videos and taken note, ther is somethngs i dont git but just going have to wing it and give it a shot.
Move down to the "Do-It-Yourself" forum and ask away.
