Step 2: Build the end posts

For both end posts, I used:
  1. 4ft-pieces of lumber (x2)
  2. 2ft pieces with 45-degree angled ends (x6)
  3. 3ft pieces (x4)
In retrospect, the 3ft pieces should have been at least 6ft.

Take a look at the photos to see how it all fits together.
Love it thanks
Great idea! <br>Although I would be concerned about being injured on the beam or on the beam's protruding screws...
Yes, the bolts are a bit of a hazard, especially because some of the bolts I selected are an inch too long (7&quot; instead of 6&quot;). This isn't a good setup to learn slacklining, but it's wonderful for people like me who enjoy slacklining but don't have any other way to set it up.
Ha. How did I miss this when you published it? Doesn't beat two trees, but if you don't have two trees, this is great! Didn't know you slacklined lance, love the slow-mo shots! <br> <br>J
Thanks! Glad you liked the slowmo shot - I thought it may have been a little too 'show-off-ish.' I'd rather have two trees also, but alas my yard lacks that. And besides, this way I get to play with power tools and enter the wood contest :)
I think I might adapt this for an indoor hammock stand!
