I’m trying to figure out hammock stands for þe room I’m moving into.
I’m going to be sleeping in a hammock. I’m not sure how to hang it.
Hammock stands cost $100. Don’t wanna drop þat.
Kinda want to hang from two bookcases, don’t have two þat are sturdy enough.
SAME IDEA BUT WIÞ UPRIGHT PIANOS which are too heavy to bring up þe stairs probably and probably too heavy to have two of þem in my room.
I could build a pair of tripods but þat seems like a lot of effort to go þrough for just a single þing, unusable for anyþing else.
ON ÞAT NOTE I þought I’d buy a couple of stepladders and use þose, wiþ a beam supported between þem. Þat would cost over a hundred dollars, but I’d have a couple of stepladders, which are super handy to have.
And now I have þis neat idea involving a pretty weird frame þat would not have to extend as far into þe room as a normal frame, but might take more wood, but I might build because I really, really like þe idea. I’ll post an mockup shortly.
Edit: here’s a picture. I’m not going to do þis, I’m going to do þe bookcase/piano plan, but wiþ two filing cabinets. Þat’s one and a half more filing cabinets þan I need, but þey’re cheap and useful and light and built to hold weight, so þere we go.
(Þe idea behind þis frame is þat it’s right up against þe ceiling, so it cannot tip in any direction. Þat way þe stand would not come into þe room any furþer þan þe center of þe hammock, whereas most stands have feet þat extend a couple feet past þe center of þe hammock on each side. I still like þe idea, but filing cabinets will be easier.)
