hanging daybed

Submitted by cableslack on Sun, 03/15/2015 - 08:58

I really liked and wanted to build the hanging daybed.  Then I needed somewhere to hang it.  Then I wanted to use it during the day (Northeast Brasil - Sun is brutal)

Built using massaranduba wood (Father in law has a woodshop) and the thing weighs a tonne.  

The shades are a 85% sunshade.

It has proven very popular with family and friends.  As of yet there has not been space on it for me to try out.  

Bed measures 1.0M x 1.9M

Project all total took about 120 hours.
