It was time to disassemble this creaky old swing and figure out what to do with it. I had purchased a high-end chair-type hammock a few years ago and let it dangle mid-frame for a while. No one used it. It was not as fun or comfortable as it looked.
I knew I needed something with more support, constructed more like a sling in a director's chair, yet with cushy expanding comfort.
We concluded that the brace of the A ought to support some outdoor upholstery material and be just about the right distance from the ground if done right.
OK... Let's give it a shot!
