    Talking I made two more...in CAMO!

    So after I made my first Blackbird Tribute, seen in this thread HERE , I decided it was time for another because once you start...you just can't stop! I love my Blackbird, it's an awesome hammock. But, I have really wanted one in Camo. So, I decided to make one!

    Then I got thinking though. My friend Pete (raiffnuke), has made me a few things, and hooked me up with my first serious knife, and has been a great dude since the day I met him (thank you HF), and consider him a good friend now. So, I decided to make him one too!

    So here they are!!!

    Petes - side view


    Pete's - footbox


    Pete's - rear view


    I gave Pete his hammock on Saturday and hope he gets good use out of it. He plans to do a little review on it, so look for that thread real soon

    And here is mine

    Side View


    Footbox


    Top View


    Another footbox


    Rear view


    A double layer with whoopies in stuff sack at 23.2oz!!


    Grosgrain sewn for looks, and support which is essential


    All whipped up!


    Sewing in the zipper


    And the inevitable smile you get when you lay in your hammock

    dude, how sweet is that thing. i love camo as well, it should be a crayon. if brandon hooked it back up again with a 1.0 dbl in camo i'd buy a 4th. some serious quality work it looks like - i love custom work - screams attention. good job!! how come that dumbbell isn't on the scale - that's your stake right?

    I can't say enough good things about this hammock! Yukon really outdid himself this time! I am honored at this wonderful gift and the great friendship we have...all thanks to HF!

    I will be giving this baby a good test hang this coming weekend with a review to follow.

    Thanks again Yukon, it is an honor to have you as a friend.

    Wow! The camo BB looks awesome!.....'wonder what it would look like if I made another one in camo but with the panels and inner layer in black.
    I'm not asleep... but that doesn't mean I'm awake.
