    With warmer weather approaching I am wanting to replace my cheap metal hammock stand with something nicer.

    I’m thinking of some beefy mortise and tenon design instead of bent lamination.

    Anyone have any ideas or plans. I’m not sure where to start. Thanks for any help!

    Scott,
    Hopefully this link from Fine Woodworking will work.

    Hmm I don’t know if I could relax for an afternoon nap with a 8ft tall dragon looming above me, but I appreciate the thought!

    I was thinking something like the attached image. Maybe joinery if not the best route and I should just stick some bolts in there?

    I’m all for relaxing under that fine dragon structure, myself, though it looks to be quite the commitment in time and money. I did not need any portability myself, so when I decided to sleep outside on nice cool spring and autumn days, I simply sunk two 4×4’s into the ground with cement at 45% angles to each other for more strength. I was promptly surprised how much spring they had when I got into the hammock. It wound up to be unusable with my tarp, so now I’m considering staking them out with a chain on either opposite end, cemented into the ground. If that still doesn’t hold – I need a new diet, I guess. 🙂
