    I just ran plain mason line through my channel with a coat hanger to push it through. Synched the mason line down to create the bulb and Bob's your uncle.

    My favorite hammock for the yard is my double layer 90x156 -- super comfy. I've even had 5 lounging sideways in it at the same time.

    I ordered a black one for me and a silver one for my friend for her birthday.

    I decided on getting 2 different colors of amsteel for the suspension.

    My friend is a ground dweller and I think I am slowly converting her! muahaha!


    Thanks again, Caveman, for your tutorial. You made it easy.

    Awesome. Using different amsteel helps know what end is the head w/o taking it out of the bag

    I'm glad that the thread has inspired some to get there and try it. Thanks!
