    Thumbs up Hello from Woodstock VT

    Hello all -
    My name is Garry Carlson from Woodstock Vt and Carthage NC (snow birds) - My wife made a hand made hammock, the wide, knotted variety and I have been saddled ( a pun considering SHE is a horsewoman as well) with finding a design for the base, made out of wood (because thats what I do!)

    I am looking forward to reading about all of the ways to use these hammocks, especially on the upcoming hot nites we are expecting (like the ones we have already been having I mean!)

    Thanks in advance for all the information I haven't even read yet!

    Garry

    Welcome to the forum!

    If woodworking is what you do and your wife took the time to hand knot a full hammock, you'll probably want to make something nice like this or this.

    Be sure to post pics when you have that finished!

    Welcome from NC.
    - Loki,

    "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
    Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
    The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
    while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."

    Ahhhh, Woodstock VT. One of the ten most beautiful villages in the US. Spent Christmas there once many moons ago.

    Welcome from Indiana!
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."

    Hey Gary, You found a great site.

    Gotta say, I miss VT. I lived in Hartland for a bit. You're in a great area. Take advantage of it.

    Hi Coach, I worked across the river at St. Gaudens NHS about 15 yr.s ago. What a great area! I paddled that river many times. Welcome!

    Oops! I was thinking of Windsor, VT. Still, not too far from you.
