Here’s a great addition to the backyard that will see you enjoying the lazy days of summer in style.
You will need: 50mm screw eyes (x42), 50mm x 50mm dressed timber – approx 20m, braided polypropylene rope (minimum 6mm) – approx 40m, drill with 12mm and 4mm drill bits, mineral turps for washing paintbrush, paint stirrer, paintbrush, pencil, Resene Woodsman Wood Oil Stain tinted to Resene Totem Pole, sandpaper, saw, scissors, tape measure.
Top tip: If you want to use thicker rope it may be necessary to use a larger drill bit for the holes.
Safety first: Ensure your hammock is securely tied at each end to a fence post or other stable object before using. The hammock can safely carry approx 85kg.
Handy hint: If the rope stretches over time simply untie the hammock at one end and adjust accordingly.
Here's another idea: In the same way, use pieces of driftwood or tree branches threaded onto rope.
