What should I know about building from a kit?

Building From A Kit

Many wood hammock stands are "build-it-yourself" affairs where you purchase your own wooden beams or planks to go with the hardware kit. If you are constructing an indoor wood hammock stand, make sure the wood has been sanded properly and there are no splinters-bare feet and legs will definitely pick them up eventually. You can sand the wood yourself, or pay to have the home improvement store sand them down for you, saving a bit of time in the construction process. It's also a good idea to buy some rubber covers or sealant to apply to any screwtops, protruding butterfly heads or nails that might catch tender feet in a careless moment.
