    Disregard my previous comment. Those stands won't walk closed. Cordage limiters will do ya fine! Looks good!

    Here's Bear on the kitty hammock I made by tying fabric on my limiters:
    That is exactly what I want. Thanks for the photo, your cat looks like he's enjoying it.

    Maybe just staking them down would work as limiters and use rope and nylon for the shelf... Decisions, Decisions.

    When I saw your picture of the hardware, I knew that was what I needed. It is going to be perfect for me, thanks.

    I travel a lot, and I need to have it fit in my car so I can just go, whenever I want.

    The same guy, I drove to Peoria to pick up the 16, but he says that he'll combine orders. Give the guy a call, he is very willing to go outside of Ebay and give a better deal.

    Wow, thanks, Agfadoc! Excellent detailed instructions and photos!

    Pipsissewa, your stand looks really cool.

    He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one." (Luke 22:36 ESV)

    While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3 ESV)

    Agfadoc...when I hang a hammock on my stand I set it for the sag I like and then, if it is too high or low to the ground I adjust the height of the ridgepole.

    I suspend the ridgepole with continuous loops long enough for the ridgepole to be as low as I will ever need. I just wrap the loops around the pole as many times as needed to raise it when required.

    I also put a short piece of bicycle tire inner tube on the "tree" straps to guarantee they won't slip on the aluminum.

    Looks good, but in your write up you have a few places that had me a little confused until I looked at the pic closer. You put a piece of PVC in the eye bolt, then pressed a NUT, not a bolt into it. And again where you put the 3/8" NUTS (not bolts) and washers inside the pipe leg and floating on the bolt to keep it from crushing the leg.....RR
