My hammock stretchers are thoroughly rotten and I have to make some
replacements. Sure, it would probably be cheaper to buy a new hammock, but
I am odd that way.
Anyhow, I think that a hardwood would do better mechanically than PT or
cedar. Are any sufficiently weather proof to be left outside? Oak,
hickory, or what?
Mahogany isn't all that expensive. Is is strong enough for this
Bois 'D Arc. Good luck finding a saw mill that will cut it. The wood
starts out a bright ugly yellow, but it will quickly weather to tan (and
I assume it will eventually turn gray like everything else)
