Hi taichichuanwijchen, I am glad you enjoyed the project and these look great! I have not tried using plywood but it gives a very cool look, I will have to try that in the future.
Hi dadswoodshop, I am glad you enjoyed the Instructable. Your set of wood rocks look great! My knuckles had a few close calls on the small pieces as well. :)

Thank you Misterxp, good luck with your build. I like your idea of adding wheels to help move it around. Are you going to put the wheels on one end so the base will sit on the ground when you are using it and the wheels will touch when it is tipped up to move like in the picture below?
Hello skowron2535,The material used is dimensional lumber in the United States. The thickness for the base pieces is 1.5 inches, this applies to the 2x4's, 2x6's and 2x8's. The arms are 3.5 inches.thick for the 4x4's. All units are English.

Hi Edsamuels,I am sorry the template is not working for you. I traced the top rim on a 5 gallon bucket for my original hammock stand as seen below. It is close enough in size to work. I would recommend tracing the curve and making sure you like how it looks before cutting. You can always blend the cut curve with sandpaper if it is a little off. If you don't have a bucket you can trace an arc with a nail, a piece of string and a pencil for a makeshift compass. You do not need to drive the nail in, just use the point to keep it from slipping. Good luck!

Hi cfs0527, I am glad this Instructable has been helpful on your quest to relax in the shade. Good luck with your project!
Hi Sangeniti, I am sure of my measurements. The provided dimensions are for an 11 foot long hammock. The stand itself will be longer than the hammock. LeslieGeee has made an excellent suggestion when purchasing or making a hammock. Good Luck and Enjoy!
Hi Tony.gailandtony, thank you for viewing my Instructable. The two hammocks pictured were both purchased so I do not have directions on how to make them. There are other Instructables on how to make similar hammocks or you can purchase a hammock. Good luck and Happy Birthday!
