I need to build a stand to hang a chair
 
Hi guys.

I want to build a free standing mount to hang a sky chair from...

http://www.skychairs.com/chair.htm

I want to be able to put the chair out in the yard but I don't have any trees to mount it from. I was thinking about making something from 4x4's? It needs to support at least 250#'s.

Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks!

You could build two ends like an "A" and then attach one across the top connecting the two. Hang the swing from that. Just make sure if it will be outside to use pressure treated or something that is rot resistant to moisture such as redwood or cedar.

Use sky hooks!
