    Here are some I have taken so far. I will make up some diagrams too. The folding process can't really be captured in just a picture.

    Well, we are trying to develop our own new homemade design. It helps to see how other designs are made so we can take from them what we like and incorporate those ideas with our own. A Speer/Jeff/Risk/Hennessy/wilsonbmw hybrid.

    Wow, and to think I was hesitante to remove the netting alone.

    Let us now about the way it is folded. That I think is what gives it all of the shape.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Yeah, I know that. But I do like the asymmetry of the HH, and would like to incorporate that into my hammock.

    I know, I just like giving people a hard time - especially my fellow DIY guys. We're not exactly known for following the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" philosophy

    We like to break things and then fix them!

    wilsonbmw,

    Thanks so much for taking those pics and voiding the warranty on the HH . You are the man.

    BTW, it was mentioned earlier that the HH site list the fabric dimensions of each model of hammock here.. JRB owners could also use their quilts to find the asymmetrical tie out points on the DIY version of these hammocks.

    Looks like I will be sewing tonight.

    Excellent. Sorry you had to disassemble.

    On your HH Unfolding pic I see stiching. Is each fold sewn?

    Looking at your pics again.

    Are there the same number of folds on each side? Did it appear to be rolled different on one side versus the other?

    I am thinking the folds are where the asym shape is coming from.

    The head end is different from the foot end. The folds on both sides of the head end are the same. My current hypothesis is that the asym ( not really asymmetrical, has 180 degree rotational or point reflexive symmetry ) shape comes from the netting, and the fact that the corners are brought together and overlapped before the folding. The folding is what makes it lay so nice and flat when you get in it. I will do some more pics tomorrow that will be a series showing how to put it back together. I should really get back to studying for a final exam I have tomorrow.
