As a stomach sleeper, I find the indentation of the hammock really uncomfortable, which I normally resolve by stuffing a sweater under my stomach. Unfortunately that's just one more fiddle factor to deal with on restless nights. So I was thinking... why not try to make a waistbox, as opposed to a footbox? It could be built like the woodsman, with amsteel to support it rather than cloth.
So has anyone tried to build one before? How has it worked out? Any suggestions for how I should attach the amsteel to the middle of the hammock?
