Step 1: Wood to make hammock rigid
Step 2: Length of grey duct tape
After the strips were laid out (26 in all), then the wood pieces were added to each end and secured to the table so it wouldn't move. The strips of tape were folded over onto themselves. The over laps reached to the middle of the hammock which gives plenty of strength so it won't pull apart.
Step 3: Red duct tape
Step 4: Reinforcing ends
Used a 1//4" drill bits to drill the rope holes. spacing started at 1" in from the end, then every 5 1/2". Then used a 1/2" countersink bit to round the ends of the holes.
