Introduction: Paracord Banana Hammock
i've seen a few instructables on paracord hammocks but none of this type which in my opinion is the most comfortable
Step 1: Tools and Matereals
first (for the cutting and fusing) you will need:
- about 300 feet of paracord
- a tape measure
- burner of some kind (lighter or a cool homemade liquid burning torch like the one shown)
- a knife (not shown)
afterwards you will need:
- a piece of PVC (not necessarily needed but it makes it a ton easier)
- time and patience
Step 2: Cutting
measure and cut 24 15-20 foot pieces of paracord and fuse the ends
Step 3: Get Knotty
put one end of all the strands in a loop, then place them on a piece of PVC and find a way to hang it from the ceiling (not necessarily required but it does make it easier) it put it between 2 removable ceiling panels then tie a bunch of overhand knots with both strings at the same time in a line across the strands then do it again in another row
Step 4: More Knots!
i know your probably sick of this by now but you need one more line of knots, at the very end of the strands tie a row of loops like you did at the top
Step 5: Hang and Enjoy!
thread a piece of rope or more paracord through the loops on the ends and hang it up
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
