    You want to put the screw into the studs which surround the door frame. Using the door frame itself is risky. I believe someone posted a pic where they tore out a frame by hanging their hammock from it.

    You're correct, Knotty... modern pre-hung door and window frames are fastened through the trim, with finish nails!

    Does anyone know of a good thread with directions for making an easy/cheap hammock stand?
    A little reluctantly I think I will look into making one, but I may just go for corner to corner in my room if it looks like a much easier option

    How beefy are you looking to make?

    I've just literally got done designing one out of 4x4 cedar that I'm gonna make.

    I'm quite small, only 73kg or 161 lbs so I'd want to make it as small and lightweight as possible.

    Oo Cedar will be nice! Lightweight and smell nice hah!
