    DIY Ogee

    Hello Hammock forums!

    So after reading these forums for months and months I have finally decided it's time for my first post. Before I begin showing off my original topic I would like to say thank you to a few people. Thank you to gargoyle for allowing me to use his awesome design and advice in an attempt to emulate his work. Thank you to Scott from DIY Gear Supply for his great products and wonderful customer service. Thank you to Shug for putting out those crazy videos which originally got me into this mess And last but certainly not least thank you to everyone else on this forum who give such great input each and everyday.

    Now with the mushy stuff outta the way check out my tarp and let me know how I did. Boost my ego a little bit after all that injecting darn near killed me. Basically just make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside hahaha.

    I will try and get some close ups at some point because I think I did pretty good on the construction part. The tarp to the left of mine is a buddy of mines DIY Ogee. His turned out great too. They are so versatile.

    Anyways thanks again and I look forward to posting some of my other DIY stuff I have done in the very near future.

    Scott

    Thanks a lot! That's at the top of Virgin Fall which is in Sparta, TN. Absolutely gorgeous place to hike!

    Great Job! I haven't been through that side of the state in over a year and half.(usually go at least annually) Be careful with DIY. It's addictive.
    It'll be alright Friday!

    Tell me about it! I have like a million stuff sacks now I highly recommend Virgin Falls. This is what we slept above and the other pic shows the mouth to the cave (basically our chill and stay dry area) about 50 yards from our hanging area:

    Now you guys are making me blush The best advice I can give as a noob myself is invest in a ton of glue sticks especially when working with the sil. Don't exactly know how others feel about that but it helped me tremendously and the only holes poked in my tarp were from the injector needle. It also allowed me some extra working time to get my hems and reinforcements nice and straight before I injected them with some thread. I prefer the disappearing purple by Elmer's myself. You can do it man!

    Did you use glue sticks instead of pins?

    That is a great Idea!
