Selleys Ezi Press 130g Liquid Nails
Spread the hammock out, with the side you'll be sitting on facing down. Fold back the top by 320mm and fold up the base by 200mm.
Apply construction adhesive in a zigzag along the hems, press them down and leave to dry without moving the hammock. The top fold creates a pocket for a rail to give the chair structure; the base fold reinforces the seat.
Position the hammock loops over the hooks, ensuring the ropes aren't tangled. Twist the rail so the stoppers hold against the seat, tucking rope behind them to prevent the fabric slipping off. Gather the fabric along the rail evenly, and fold down the sides to minimise bulk. Place a firm cushion (ours is 450mm) in the base to help hold the shape of the seat.
Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
