    Video: A Couple of my DIY Hammocks

    Hey guys just thought I would do a short video to let you see a couple of my DIY hammocks, one I have just hanging out in the front yard and the other one I have hanging in what I call the play room so that I can watch a little TV if I want to. I hope you enjoy.

    The best part of the video was the introduction

    Seriously, thanks for posting it. I'm in the midst of making hammocks right now and experimenting with different dimensions, etc.

    Great video. For an ugly dude you sure make some pretty babies, I got the same. How many times have you hung from the porch like that. No creaking or anything from the post? I got some 6x6 post holding up the back patio and I have been eying them since we got the house but I'm too chicken to hang off them. Not cause they would fall on me but my wife would tear me up if I brought the roof down.
    Keep doing what you doing and let them babies cry.

    PS. Saw them toe shoes, love mine.

    Thanks at least you like my Toe Shoes LOL! You know as far as the porch I have never had a problem with anything creaking. I actually am going to put me up several 6x6 in the back yard to accommodate the girls also. Take care my friend.

    My post aren't' set in the slab. They got metal brackets on the bottom and a butt joint to the ceiling. I am finishing up on a swing set I think will be a good hang in the back yard.

    I liked the way you handle yourself and didn't get into name calling when criticized, which seems all to prevalent over the 'net. A good way to show class, especially for a 'southern hick'.

    Also looks like you are turning out some real quality product.

    As for the duo that introduced you.... Oh man, you are gonna have your hands FULL. Are they twins? I have two girls that are a year apart, fighting about everything from clothes to boyfriends. I don't envy you ,brother. Don't worry though, they do grow out of it (well, mostly... they are now in their early twenties).

    SE908,

    Don't know how i missed this post the first go-round, but I did. Nice set ups you have there. I keep hinting at indoor hangs, but I keep getting an evil eye.

    Keep pluggin' away with your stuff.
