How to Make a Hanging Paracord Chair

Picture of How to Make a Hanging Paracord Chair
This is a very comfortable and a fairly easy to make chair that you can put in most places that have beams or branches above you. It took me a total of 5 hours to put together and hang for my first time.

Step 1:

The first thing that you need to do for this task is to consider all materials, cost, and time that is required.
What you need to accomplish this feat is:
1. power saw or table saw
2. power drill 
3. drill bit
4. safety glasses
5. 3 (1x5in.) 12ft. wood boards
6. 75ft. of Paracord
7. 6 eye hooks 
8. Sandpaper
9. Level

Total Cost: $26.79
Time Spent: 5 Hours
Fun and Enjoyment of the Chair: Priceless

Step 2: Step 1 (Cutting)

You need to start by marking your wooden boards (1x5in. 12ft) to be cut. Cut the boards to your preferred width. I cut the boards to a width of 3 feet. A thing to keep in mind is that if you have a smaller width or a 1/2x4 inch board, then you might not need as much wood and can cut down on the cost. Use the power saw to cut your boards into desired length. You should have 12 boards cut and ready.
