building a Hammock - DIY
« on: May 06, 2016, 08:43:40 AM »
I am trying to build a hammock...

Looking over many designs, I saw one that has these:



I am trying to find these metal brackets but have no idea the name to look out for since english is not my main language so sometimes i have trouble with specific technical names - tools and such as well.

If someone could point me in the right direction you'd be my hero!

I see a lot of vendors using those brackets so I assume it should be something fairly easy to get?

Beam bracket, joist holder, post cap.  Hammock stand kit, hammock brackets.

Something like that could work.  Seems tough to find online.

You could start a business!

Personally for $99, I would just order the brackets with the beams and hammock and modify them as you desire.

Or for $66 just buy one that's already made.

From the link you provided it says:

Not Included: Hammock Stand
