The first step is to make the angled cuts of the beams that will hold the hammock, the 6' beams. 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. My wife had always want to have a hammock in our back yard, so I made this hammock stand for her as a Christmas present. I used only two bolts so that I had a stronger piece of wood and then breaced it in the middle and back. 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. After a summer of taking my little portec hammock on canoeing and camping trips, I decided that I wanted to be able to enjoy the hammock in the winter too!


I looked at the available hammock stands and they seemed quite expensive but very simple so I decided to give it a try. I am not sure where you got your wood and supplies but I can tell you I've had mine for years without issue. 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. I have been laying on my hammock with my two daughters countless times, I've even shared a hammock with my wife without problems. To increase stability significantly, I added wire rope diagonals between the ends of the feet and the middle of the top beam. 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.


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). I weight at 264 and I was laying in it over night and it is very relaxing and had a great time knowing I used scrap wood and new bolts. I was hot to trot to buy a couple of wooden frames with quilted hammocks for my twin girls 'till I looked at retail prices.
