I finished making my first hammock tonight. I still have to make the fly
and bug net. I only sustained minor injuries and didn't have to go to the
hospital. Darn pins/needles are sharp. LOL
It was definitely a learning experience. It isn't rocket science, but it
definitely takes some skill and practice, practice, practice.
I think I may have made the hammock too deep. I based it on a 4' child, and
the inside is about 6' in length. I made the width about 48". I should
have probably went with 42". I haven't tested it out yet so it is tough to
tell if it is too deep. I will test it tomorrow.
If it is too wide I may be able to put some side ties on it like the HH's
have. Well, I am off to bed.
I will try to post some photos soon.
