I am not sure what to call this, maybe TREEfool’s Platform of Awesomeness? What do you think?
Last week I showed you guys an idea I was working on after I cut up one of my old hammocks and hung it in a very non traditional way (see that post here). I was honestly so overwhelmed with the idea that I HAD TO BUILD IT. I have gotten pretty quick with the sewing machine lately so it only took me a few hours to make.
HERE ARE THE BUILD PICTURES:
…and HERE ARE THE FINISHED PICTURES:
My verdict? Meh. Haha. I mean, it is WAY MORE AWESOME than my traditional hammock because I have SO MUCH ROOM and the weight difference is negligible. I didn’t expect it to drop so much in the middle when I am laying in it so the lay isn’t very flat head to feet. That is a big bummer for me because I NEED a flat lay. A lot more testing needs to be done and then I will build on a mosquito net and tarp. I have a lot of ideas but for now just enjoy the sneak peak!
Stay tuned for more updates and its maiden voyage into the tree canopy!
