Build yourself a hammock stand

You dream to enjoy a relaxing moment in a hammock but you have nowhere to hang it? An easy way to solve this problem is using a hammock stand.  And there is nothing easier that build one yourself with a few timbers. You can place this DIY hammock stand wherever you want and enjoy a nap at any time. I know summer is almost over, but let’s just enjoy the last sunny days. You will find the complete tutorial on Bob Vila.

Full tutorial HERE


If your hammock material is stretchy, I suggest you make the lateral posts longer than the measure in the tutorial.
You can have a look at the modifications this guy made to adapt the dimensions of the hammock stand, read his instructions here.

Hello Caitlin, I made it awhile ago and I can't remember the size of the hammock I used...and our dogs end up chewing it so I don't have it anymore to check! The size is an important factor and also the hammock material...some fibers will stretch more than other! Maybe you can just buy the hammock you like and once you have it try to adjust the stand size? I'm sorry that I'm not very helpful on that one.
