    Thanks.
    great, glad it got there. Also glad to find a good use for the netting. I had way more than I was going to use anytime soon for my needs.

    The one thing I might have done but didn't was to notch or drill the hardwood spreaders in a way that was obvious to accept the suspension line. Perhaps I didn't because I couldn't think of anything obvious…anyway, when I hung it with the bars, I just tied each line onto the bar (clove hitch) and that did the needful.

    First two completed

    Lights have been back on and I'm getting back in gear. I field tested the adult size (9+') in the basement and Hangin' Burrito's daughter, Bear Bait (age 7) field tested the childrens version (5'). Bug net is draped over hammock and tensioned with Prusiks on either end.









    I'll try to pound out a few more and mail them together.

    Just whipped up a section of the donated mosquito netting fabric we got from OWF. Copied Grizz's design. Super simple and easy.

    Two pieces at 10 feet long, hem on three sides, attach four small loops of webbing or grosgrain for attachment points. Tie on four lengths of string. Total time, under an hour. Really functional piece of kit.
    These would work great for anyone needing netting on their hammock. Leave small hole on each end for your suspension.
    I really like how the design gives you two neat little storage pockets.
    Sweet ideas from the grizz, do they ever stop?

    Talking Prize of the bunch

    I just finished the last of the first batch to be mailed out and I'm rather proud of how it came out. I decided to make an infant/toddler hammock. As such, I didn't want a mother/father to worry about an accidental 'roll-out' so it had to be a closed system. The hammock is about 42" long and 36" wide. It has double zippers on both sides with the bug-net slung over the ridge line. The ridge line is a double UCR for adjustability of length and sag.

    I wish I had a better backdrop (not my basement) but it's the only place to hang the hammocks in a real life scenario for testing, measuring, and tweaking.

    I've been enjoying making these hammocks because it is a worthy cause. I've also honed some of my thread injecting skills. The double UCR, believe it or not came to me in a dream. Nine inch buries limit the chance of slippage. Worst case scenario, sag changes, not a fall.

    hey, that looks good! Looks familiar somehow….

    When I was hanging mine I thought too about the possibility of putting holes in the ends to let hammock suspension lines through. Good to see that it works.

    keep up the good work!

    Made up four more today. Had to go pick up some more grosgrain and string.
    It takes alot to burn up a whole roll of netting. I figured I can make 25-30 of these netting rooms with the fabric we have.

    I am in need of some suspension line...if anyone has some extra they want to donate..
