This book is the ultimate do it yourself guide for making your own hammocks.

This book made it to me fast and in great condition. There are several types to choose from and a couple of ways to attach the hammock to the stand or trees. The illustrations are clear, but there could be a few more about the weaving techniques.

I was disappointed that it only actually shows how to make 4 hammocks, NOT 5 AS OTHER REVIEWS STATE. It only talks about the Mayan hammock and states that they are too complicated for this book....... Book is SMALL and printed in 1972.....needs better illustrations / photos....Need to be revised...Do not over pay for this book..... like I did. One good thing was the sprang hammock, I did like this hammock.

I've never ordered a "used" item before. I was expecting the pages to be falling out and the book to be wrote in but it wasn't! My package arrived almost 2 weeks earlier to date than expected too! Thank you!

Admittedly, the problems I've had making a hammock with the aid of this book may be attributable human error (i.e. my own ineptitude); yet once I began "following" the instructions, I became increasingly frustrated by the vagueness of the book. I found myself making many errors and asking many specific questions which go unaddressed by the author. Expect to make many mistakes, prepare yourself to start over from scratch at least once, and pay no attention to the prices for which these hammock can supposedly be made - be prepared to spend a bit more.

Very little information. Covers 5 methods of hammock styles. Gives 5 instructions, 1 for each style, on how to build the hammock. No fluff, but no detail either.

This book is a great introduction to making simple hammocks, my very favorite being the SPRANG (sort of pronounced "sprong") hammock. I have two copies of the orginal spiral-bound edition of this book - one in which to write notes and another as a clean copy.

All of the book's projects are simple and direct, but I have a special fondness for the sprang technique (see also the excellent book, The Techniques of Sprang, by Peter Collingwood). The sprang hammock is beautiful and can be as simple or - using Collingwood's book along with Andrews' - intricate, versatile and useful as you wish. Sprang technique can be used to make a wide variety of projects using an endless range of attractive and interesting patterns - hammocks, hats, shawls, throws, wall hangings, room dividers and many other works of art.

This delightfully simple technique is wonderfully sensual. Weaving the soft string into fabric is the material equivalent of creating soothing, soft, gentle music with your hands. The sprang hammock is, by far, the most comfortable described in Andrews' book. With it's finer more supple weave, it is much more comfortable and form-fitting to lie in than the ubiquitous Twin Oaks hammock (shown on the cover of the paperback edition of this book) that we see in so many garden, craft and general merchandise stores and that is made with rope, a texturally much courser material which leaves it's pattern and feeling embedded on your backside.

Your sprang hammock need not be restricted to a project room. On the contrary, it is beautiful and intriguing to see and display from the very beginning to completion on an extremely simple attractive loom arrangement; in fact, if you use the following suggested loom setup, your loom will be unrecognizeable as such: Because I am tall enough (a short stool would work just as well), I was able to simplify Andrews' "loom" apparatus to two 3-foot long dowels with a 3-foot long counterweight/warping frame board (a finished 2X6 board with a warping pattern of dowels inserted into and protruding from the face of the board) on which to lay out the weaving string material ... Here's the scheme: In a typical 8-foot tall room, one dowel with eye-hooks in each end is suspended horizontally just a few inches below the ceiling. Similarly, a second dowel is horizontally suspended a little less than a foot above floor level by the two weaving string layers which run vertically between and passing around the two dowels. The warping board counterweight is, in turn, suspended from the bottom dowel and just slightly clears the foor, keeping the weaving strings under consistent constant tension. Look at the sprang loom arrangement illustrated in Andrews' book, and you'll see what I mean; I've simply eliminated the middle dowel of the three-dowel loom setup that he shows, making a vertically arranged two-dowel loom instead, while simultaneously significantly reducing the awkwardness of weaving on the loom that Andrews depicts and explains.

I have woven several of Andrews' simple sprang hammocks, easily completing most in a day or two. If you wish, though, you can take several months to a year or more just for the sheer enjoyment of seeing and living with the beauty of the displayed process. This is an especially accommodating technique for anyone with limited and/or irregular amounts of time and space in which to work.

Andrews' book is a great starting point for hammock-making, and sufficiently detailed to really have fun learning! ENJOY!!

This book is the ultimate do it yourself guide for making your own hammocks. All different kinds are addressed: Brazilian, Mayan, Sprang, Royal Navy, Twin Oaks and more. Includes complete shopping and mail order information as well as instructions for wall or tree installations. Also a bit of history and philosophy. Illustration and photos.

Before reading this masterpiece, if it's indeed the book I'm thinking of, I viewed hammocks as a playful contraption for swinging and naps. Since reading, and making hammocks, I've comfortably joined the millions of humans who sleep primarily in hammocks. What better way could there be to sleep?
Got it as a gift for someone.
