Step 4: Creating the Ribs

These strips of Duct Tape go from one side support under the center support around  the opposite side support and back across the center support to the original side support so that the adhesive is touching adhesive. These should be spaced out every 6-8 inches in between the intersections.

It is important that the ribs are not taunt. They should have a little bit of slack because when you lay down the side supports will move to the sides. Otherwise they would be help to close to the center support and the Hammock would not be wide enough.
it's an asome hammock but it takes a little bit of time (2 hours)
nice job- like the dog!
i actually tried this hammock and it worked! haven't tried the others yet though... so i can't judge to much!
I have to say- i have really enjoyed watching this contest. i this entry is a really great one- because it's no fuss and simply easy and enjoyable. nice job!
what a great idea! quick and easy- and perfect to carry on a hike. you don't need all the fancy stuff- just a plain durrable hammock to nap in. i'm off to attempt to make one right now! <br>
This is such a great example of a duct tape project! I think out of all the hammocks this one is certainly the best! WAY TO GO HAMMOCK BOY!
I certainly agree.
