    Made a camp chair stand

    Update, Ive taken it on 3 camps since I made it. Its holding up and looks unused still. Loving the 2021 Lanshan 2!

    Tarp I made

    Thought I'd add to this by showing some making of pics: Was a bit of a challenge getting that much material through a £30 sewing machine. Fairly straight, I'm happy with it considering the machine and how rusty I am at using a sewing machine. The underside. I used wonder tape to...

    Tarp I made

    Easy, I always have a pouch of 12 titanium sheephook pegs as they weigh nothing. I just use tie outs that are round the edge to hold down the walls. You can also change the hight of the pole, higher leaves a gap that can have nice air movement in the heat, or lower to seal round it.

    Tarp I made

    Thanks again! I'd say a tip with that setup is peg it out tight especially the front 2 pegs. I find it gives me a constant nice tight setup. Also when pegging out the front ones, go to the 2nd tie out in, then peg the corner tie out about 6 inches (or 15cm) in from that. Also, I don't know if...

    Tarp I made

    It's based on the DD 3x3m tarp. But the ripstop is narrower once you take off the salvage. So it ended up being 285x285cm. It's got 16 tie outs and all of them round the sides are reinforced. The center is a French flat felled seam so I didnt reinforce that as it's already 4 layers of ripstop. I...

    Tarp I made

    Thanks! Ever since I saw that setup a couple of years ago I really like it. Really quick to setup once you've done it a couple of times. Great in the rain if you set the wind to the back of it and still can give nice views out of it.

    Tarp I made

    Thanks, I made a few stuff bags and bits and Bob's to get my eye in, I've not used a sewing machine for about 20 years. Fun little project. I'm thinking about making another with lighter better material and a heavy duty oilskin one.

    Tarp I made

    A few months ago I made a tarp out of cheap ripstop off ebay, I finally tested is out in my garden. Just a simple Tarp Tent setup with a treking pole set to 120cm. Really happy with how it came out.

    Made a camp chair stand

    Yesterday I knocked up a support for my camping chair to stop it sinking, I've been using tennis balls on the feet since I first bought the chair a couple of years ago., They work great, but I want the space the 4 balls take up in my pack. I made it out of some 600D canvas I had. No measuring...

    What did you buy today?

    After weeks of rain every day we finally have sun so I'm waterproofing my brand new Lanshan 2. Love how small this packs to. First time going up, Lol yes needs a good bit of tweaking. Set the poles to 120cm, seems an ideal height in summer. Love this stuff, just spray on and wipe with a...

    What did you buy today?

    No problem, it is a small table. But that said it was what I was after.

    What did you buy today?

    Sure I got it off amazon, I've seen similar on ebay for about the same price. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B08VGDPFPY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Only £19.99. I did make a much lighter bag for it out of some ripstop.
