Frame for a hammock
« on: July 22, 2014, 08:02:31 PM »
It is not fine woodworking but may be of interest to some.  This is a present for a niece and will be delivered tomorrow (she will have to add a canvas top and the hammock).  The arches have a radius of 5 ft and consist of 8 plies of treated pine glued up with Gorilla glue.

Very cool!  Please post picture once top and hammock added.   How thick were your laminations you put together?

Den-Den,
Is it true that a man can NEVER have too many clamps??? That is a fine looking project. I will have to hide that one. Send pictures with the top and hammock installed.      Andy

That is a great design. I would love to flip the design over and make a rocking hammock. :)
