    Risk's $25 Hammock Stand

    Has anyone made this baby. I want to strap my HH to it but I don't think its long enough. To build or not to build, that is the question.

    If it is only 10 feet long then I don't thin it would work with and HH. You could always change the blue prints and make it longer though.

    Troll thanks, I was thinking of adding 2' to the top and bottom supports. Going to try and work on it this weekend. If anyone remembers my pipe stand, its not finished. I tried to stake it down with a re-bar rod (1/2 x 2') and I ended up bending the rod. So its back to the drawing board with that. Plus it doesn't do well with my tarp. When I get in the hammock the pole give a little loosening the tarp.

    I did make it with a few mods as shown here. Of course now days it's more like a $50+ stand unless you already have the lumber. Mine is 10' and will hold my HH Exped, but just barely.

    I sleep full time in my "$25 stand" and have for 11 months now. It has held up very well with just some minor design changes; mine doesn't come apart for transport. Well, not very easily anyway.

    It also performed well during my "dynamic load" testing.

    It was cool but stayed outside so it didn't last. I since picked up a metal stand on sale for $30. Its too low so I will add extenders to raise it
