How to Make a Free-Standing Hammock Stand
“Hammocks make for the ultimate backyard “staycation.” Nothing says summer quite like reading a book in a hammock! This free-standing wood hammock stand uses basic, pressure-treated wood posts, deck screws, and 45-degree angles to create a custom-looking stand for about $60 — much less than the average cost of a store-bought hammock base! This project creates a hammock base that’s 13-feet long from eye bolt to eye bolt, making it the perfect length for 11-foot-long hammocks.”
I have always wanted a hammock to enjoy on a lazy summer afternoon under our big shady tree. How about you? Well the good news is that you can build a hammock stand for much cheaper than you’d buy it at the store with the help of this DIY tutorial.
