DIY Hammock Stand We recently bought a portable hammock and we've enjoyed so much on our hiking and camping trips that I decided I wanted to hang it at home to enjoy on our backyard. I looked at the available hammock stands and they seemed quite expensive but very simple so I decided to give it a try. I based the design on some of the available commercial options. This is what I used: 2 8' 2X4 beams While I completely agree that the design needs more support (I would do 4x4s instead of 2x4s for the angle pieces and a 2x6 braced with a 2x4 as the beam) the hang of the hammock is quite spot on. Realize that this is a sleeper hammock, not a lounge hammock, and so you lay at about a 45 degree angle for proper back support. When doing so, you need the extra slack or you are eating your knees from the curl. In the English system it is measured in slugs. Force is measured in measured in either Newtons (metric) or pounds (English). Weight is force generated by gravity between two different masses. To be be correct, mass and weight cannot be interchanged to convert pounds to Kg. That would be like converting minutes to miles. However, because people are generally talking about mass (in grams Kg) of an object on the earth, people do convert that to the force (in pounds). It works for objects on the earth, but it is not technically correct and would not work on the moon. I have always had a hammock to relax in until i moved to my current home 3 years ago I miss it terriably. I just saw it in storage the other day and it really made me sad motivating this search I found this and I actually have most of the crap to make this as scrap on the side of my house!!! I just need the metal parts, I gunna head over to the hardware store now. I post my stand when I all done and leave a fallow up on what worked and didn love all the comments, everyone ad ons are very helpful. I have one question. How big is your Hammock? How long do you think a hammock can be and work with this design? Thank you for posting this I sleep in a hammock rather than a bed. Mine hangs from the J cargo hooks. Each has two drywall screws that pass thro the drywall and into the studs. It nice that it is easily hung out of the way. A small cord is tied around the middle when both ends share one hook. The cord is hooked on as well and the whole thing hangs clear of the floor on one side of the room. A nice big basket holds my sleeping bag and sheet liner. Sleeping diagonally is the way to go if one wants to sleep fairly flat. The nice thing about a woven hammock is that it supports every part of the body it touches, unlike a mattress that creates pressure points. Save your time and money, unless your looking for a temp. weekend frame then here some things to add, you must use pressure treated wood only, regular spruce 2x4 will break from the load at the bolt holes, use 2x6 for the uprights as I only weigh 180 and thrid time using it one snapped at the bottom. Also most smaller hardware stores only sell 5 1/2 bolts in galvanized material, do not use these they will bend as they are too soft and as far as the cable support goes well once you add everything up including optional stain then your time you will be at, or beyond what a metal and portable frame sells for on E bay. Appreciate the plans but not for constant use. I am sorry to hear you had issues. I am not sure where you got your wood and supplies but I can tell you I had mine for years without issue. I have been laying on my hammock with my two daughters countless times, I even shared a hammock with my wife without problems. Eventhough I recommend the reinforcement lines I have not even installed them on mine yet. Finally I have to say, at least for me, it is not so much about the savings. It is much more about the pleasure of using something you built with your own hands! Good luck on your future projects. Great design. I added the wire braces that suckmyinstrucables suggested (has to be wire, cord just stretches too much), using the hammock eyebolt on the upright rather than adding a dedicated attachment point this transfers the swaying forces directly to the crossbraces without going through the upright, and saves by not adding another bolt. Before starting the cutting, lay out the base and uprights with your hammock to check it will fit correctly I changed the upright angle from 60 to 45, which not only gives it greater strength by making the hammock tension more longitudinal than transverse to the upright, but also gives it (I think), a more pleasantly nautical appearance. Also, if the raw lumber for your uprights are starting longer than the suggested 6 (I had bought 8 lengths) leave cutting them to length till last that way you can make sure you have sufficient adjustment for your specific hammock my uprights ended at 6 rather than the suggested 6 Then I left on an extra 6" for a decorative top piece. These are some beautiful frames. I bought a hammock in the Yucatan where hammock hooks are sunk into the walls and the hammocks are taken down during the day to open up the room. Gordo (the man who I bought the hammock from) demonstrated how to sleep in them (diagonally). In High school I borrowed from their idea and attached cupboard door handles (the kind with four screw holes) to my walls (making sure to hit the beams). The hammock is hooked up to the handles with carabiners and I got a much better nights sleep than I ever did in my flat bed. My back hurt less too. However, now that I renting an apartment I don think that would be appreciated. Your stand is fantastic. It be a great summer project. Waah. I just made one. It looks great, but I came upon a few issues. maybe my home depot is just crappy, but I realized that some of my wood was warped. this made my base a little. rocky, like, rock left to right a little. Second, I definitely noticed the sway of the upright 2x4 I think what i might do is actually double up the 2x4 Third, after some testing, one of my upright 2x4 cracked at the base. It was "pulled upward" as a result of the weight in the middle of the hammock. Do you guys think that running rope or cable from the upright 2x4 to the base will prevent this from happening? And last, I feel some. weird lopsided tension on my hammock, like its forcing me to learn towards one side when laying down. can somebody help?
