How to build a hammock stand
Once you cut the timber to size based on the plans, make cuts for the half-lap joints. There are a total of 4 half-lap joints – hence 8 cuts.
Once the half-lap joints are cut, lay them out upside down and attach using 3″ exterior wood screws. Be sure to make pilot holes before driving the screws.
This is the only step where you need two people. The upright needs to be held in place by one person while the other attaches it.
Cut and attach the braces per the plans between the base and uprights using the 3″ exterior wood screws.
