    If you are planning on sewing the layers together I would just make a channel for the shock cord. Otherwise, I would put it on the outside layer. I'm not sure how well that will work.

    Is there any reason that you want a double layer? This stuff is plenty strong in a single layer.

    AHH GOOD IDEA!

    Mostly experimenting...I'm thinking about going full time and wanting something insanely strong.

    Nice writeup Caveman.

    For those not familiar with the "Knotty mod" see the links in my signature below and this original thread about the stretch side mod. http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=29560

    Thanks for showing this. I've been on the fence about doing a foot box so it is nice to know even if I'm out in the woods I can change my mind with minimal tools. Excellent.
    Sup?

    The stretch mod is an easy to do alternative to a footbox. I actually like it better since you can sit on the side of a hammock with a stretch mod but not a footbox.

    Great tutorial and pictures. I'm gonna have to try one of these table cloths soon. They seem to be a super deal.

    I have six pieces on order for holiday presents for family. Looking forward to setting them all up.
    Here is the link to the knotty mod with instructions.
