Steel & Redwood Hammock Stand
If you’re worried about your hammock falling over, keep this in demand stand on hand. If you can move it.
This project uses a lot of metal: 4 inch square steel tube, to be precise. Peter’s using it for welding practice.
After lopping off a workable chunk of the square tube, he cuts a set of angled pieces that will, once welded together, form the brackets for stabilizers. With some help from a witness mark and plenty of patience for the miter saw, it’s a fairly easy job.
After that, it’s just a matter of cutting the uprights to length, shimming and screwing the wooden bits in, and adding the hammock hardware.
You don’t see that every day.
