    What a coincidence. I just watched this video last night while browsing youtube.
    A fellow surfer from Florida I guess due to your youtube name?

    I will be converting my bugnet to a modified Fronkeynet tonight after work(another late night).
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you

    What is the width of the original piece of netting? Awesome design, plan on using it for my hammock when I get it.

    Will this material work for this project? Awesome low budget idea! Exactly what I was looking for.

    Score

    I was looking at ordering some No-See-um from the web when I walked thru the Sewing room in the house and found a ton of red tulle that was left over from another project for my girls......SCORE.We don't have Gnats or No-See-UM's in this state so it will work great. I'll be whipping up a couple for me and my daughter this week. Fronkey, thanks for taking the time to share.

    Video: How to make a hammock bug net

    Do you think 126" across and 51" down would work with a hammock using a 108" ridgeline? I feel like its going to be tight and maybe not leave room for a UQ. I did the cutting without incorporating the hammock getting wide as you lay in it.

    Height Question

    Thanks Fronkey for this great idea you have shared.

    I have sewn up the net and went to try it and have some questions.

    From the photos below, you can see that the net is really low. I'd pretty much need to cinch the cord all the way on the bottom to get a seal, and it still hangs below the hammock.

    Running a ridgeline around 100"
    Used Tulle from Joanns, which was somewhere beween 50-56" to start
    I'm 180lbs

    Any ideas on how much to snip to get this right?

    Thanks.

    This looks awesome! Do I need to have a certain amount of side wall clearance, because I was thinking of taking some off the bottom to make snakeskins with. Also, does this stay taught well enough, or should I try adding some rock pockets?
