Tell us about yourself!
Hammock arrived and has been installed and tested!!! Flynn hasn't gotten himself tangled up in it yet, but I give it about a week before he tries to hop in. :) My wife made sure to give it a thorough evaluation while I mowed the yard.
I was thinking that making two of the 2x4x8's into 2x4x10's would do the trick nicely.
Put this together today for my wife. Unfortunately....the hammock doesn't arrive from Amazon until tomorrow. LOLWe plan on planting some trees in the back yard at some point, so the hammock will have a place to live in the shade.The goober (aka Flynn) in the background kept getting into the frame, this is the only shot with all of him and not just a butt or head.
Easier pattern-removal method:Cover the entire piece of wood with blue painter's tape FIRST. Overlap the strips if you're not stacking layers of wood. I apply the tape in the same direction as the grain, makes it easier to remember which way the grain runs if I get called away on a honey-doo. Once the wood is covered, spray the back of the pattern (3M's Super77 works really well) and apply it to the tape. After drilling and cutting, the tape peels up with very little residue or need for heatguns or hot water to loosen the glue. The pattern comes up with the tape. Any glue residue is removed when you sand the project.Nice pattern, BTW!
And for the record, WalMart has piles and piles of pallets behind their stores. Ask the manager beforehand, but at the store near my house, if its not painted red or blue (they're solid red/blue, there's no way to mistake them if you're not color-blind), they're free game, so I grabbed two or three of the smaller half-pallets. :) I can afford "free".
I left the winglass hangar off the bottom, since we don't have any stemmed wine glasses. Took a couple of weekends, what with family in town last weekend and some storms making everything really damp the weekend before. Finally got it mounted this weekend, had to do some touchups to the top horizontal piece, will add the adult beverages when it dries.
