    Mexican/Mayan Hammock?

    I have been really considering weaving my own Mayan-style hammock for the GF and me to lounge around in. I was wondering if anyone else on here has tried this out? If so, any tips or things to keep in mind?

    Have a LOT of free space
    I saw a post not long after I joined where a guy was doing it. Looked tedious & time consuming.

    I am still doing some research on this and will let you guys know what I find. If I end up undertaking this project I will catalog it with detailed pictures and steps of the entire process

    They have a class in hammock making here on post. I plan on taking it this spring. I'll let you know how it goes. Yes, the framework to hold the hammock while weaving takes up some room. I've wandered into the building where they weave them and looked with awe. I'll try to get some pictures next time the door is open during the day.

    Here's a post I made last week on weaving a Mayan hammock, from loom to clew. I know weaving isn't for everyone, but I've found it's been a fun project, maybe even therapeutic! Anyway, enjoy.
