    Smile Finished my DIY treecamp hammock ----- (pictures)

    Watch the entire build in 123 seconds:

    Because you guys helped me fix my sewing machine I was able to finish my new hammock this weekend! Thank you!

    The hammock is part of a system I am building that will allow me to safely treecamp with a sub 10lbs base weight! I was unable to source silnylon locally so I am just waiting for supplies. I am so excited to finish the tarp so that I can debut the entire concept to you guys! The hammock cost just $29.60 to build .

    EDIT: I refer to this design as a "treecamp hammock" because I built it specifically for treecamping. It is simply a modified bridge hammock.

    Cool. Does it not need a set of spreader bars because you only hang from pretty wide trees on the head end?
    Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the strength to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    Cause that's a nice looking hammock.
    You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go.......

    That is a pretty sick design for a hammock, I am new so I havent really seen anything like that, sure beats my skeeter beeter : ). I am surprised it only costs that much for a product that looks like that. I really hope I can start diying soon : )

    Very nice. It's great to see your stitching problems solved.

    There is one improvement you can make that I believe will increase the strength of the connection between the hammock body and webbing supports.

    The way you have it, the stitching is too far from the lower edge of the webbing causing it to roll over and put excessive strain on the fabric and stitching. If you place the stitching (in this case add a row of stitching) at the bottom of the webbing, it will not roll over, providing a straight pull on the fabric and little stress on the stitching. Here's a sketch...

    The "Treeboat" is a good name for that hammock, with those inflatable pads you may actually be able to use it as a boat. Looks nice. Where did you get the design idea?
