cheap hammock stands Answered

i want to make a relatively small hammock stand no more than 6 to 7 feet in length for my dorm room. It should also be able to collapse easy for storage purposes. done any one have any plans that would allow me to do that? i was thinking about building it out of 1-11/4 PVC but that might be too flexible and break. ( i weigh around 170 lbs). thx guys

Or you could tie one end of the hammoct to a doorknob across the hall and then the other end to another doorknob. Tie it tightly, it hurts when it comes undone. Then again I only used a blanket and tied the corners together and hung it over the doorknobs...
