Another good looking stand mys4sllc. These are popping up almost daily!

I love this stand! Not too expensive, sturdy, and easy to put together! We went to the Big Orange Store (tm) and picked up the 2x2s, hinges, nuts and bolts, shackles, etc....and I spent Saturday morning putting them together. Had a friend over for some games in the afternoon, and then took the stand on its first outing!
I added a pair of headphones to tune to the FM simulcast of the audio....and I had the best seat in the Drive-In!
Several people commented on it, and one guy in particular came over and we talked about hammock camping in general, so I pointed him to the forum -- maybe we'll gain another convert! My only minor issue was that the wind picked up toward the middle of the second movie, so I was getting a little chilled...next time, I won't forget a blanket

It is great to see these stands used in fun locations, and the happy smiles of the occupants. : ) TurtleLady
After reading about this stand new that I had to have one. Now never a worry about if there will be trees at the camp site.
I was in Home Depot today and saw 2x3's that cost less than the untreated 2x2's AND they were much straighter and in better condition. I don't know if this was just a one time deal but they might not add too much more weight, should fit fine into this stand, and might add a bit more strength for those wanting a bit more oomph in their stand.
