Went over 2 day cus they bought the hammock for it! Oh dear! they bought a colour full one not really wa I had in mind! Shame really!
I was thinking something more like this----v which has sticks in it so it keeps the hammock open which looks nicer also
Gotta get some more clamps cus straps dont seem to pull the joints up as well as I would like cus if you look closely some of them you can slightly see open joints, even though its filled with glue expanding I would of liked it to be tight!
Im not to bothered cus its an rustic out door piece so its in keeping with the style!
Also I got the layers all flush sending it through my thicknesser but some have shrunk more than others since so arnt bang on flush! Again its part of the rustic look. I dont kno how I could prevent it in the short time we had to make it but ideally needed drying more.
Im testing the hammock out! When swinging it does move side to side flexing but flexing inwards is very min able and feels solid to be honest.
Not sure how to strengthen the side to side motion. Did get everything tight but it has slightly shrunk so not as tight any more but even when it was tight it had side to side flex.
I tried my mums which is a bought hammock and that has side to side movement so I take it that might be standard.
