Picture of duct tape hammock/cot

For the duct tape contest, I made a duct tape bed.This was a fun thing to make but, you have to make it to your size.I made mine about 5'5"in. long because im 11 and not very tall so...enjoy.

Step 1: Parts

heres what you need to make it

Around 3 rolls of duct/duck tape

2 3ft.ish thick dowels

around 10ft. of rope to be safe


Step 5: Finishing up

So, it wont make a good bed without something to hold it up so, thats where the rope and dowels come in. Cut your dowels to the length you want (the width of the mat) and line them up to make sure their the right length. Then tie rope to the end of the dowels to hold up the hammock and duct tape the rope so it dosn't slide.The last step is taping the dowels to the mat just attach it withas much duct tape as you cant so you dont fall.

Nice little 'ible. You could do with improving the images a bit - they look dark to me, but at least they're in focus !!!
