Doing It Yourself isn’t always the easiest or cheapest option, but odds are you won’t find anything more satisfying than finishing a DIY project with your own two hands. Each week, we’re going to showcase one cool DIY project tutorial from around the web.

In all honesty, the thought of making a hammock would have never even crossed our minds if we didn’t come across Meg Kemner’s DIY Two-Tone Sail Rope Hammock tutorial on Design Milk (Meg’s also responsible for the images). We’ve thought about busting out the masonry bits to mount a hammock on the balcony or in the parking lot because, well, Summer, but we were just going to pick one up from the local big orange box. With enough Boy (or Girl!) Scouts knot knowledge, a whole lot of rope, some wood, tools and time, you can make your own that’s way cooler than any you’d find in a local retailer. Your siesta awaits.

[Shop]  Just like the stash boxes that lined your father’s workbench back in the day, these metal vessels are ideal for all sorts of loose necessities. The two cases—the smaller one is nestled inside the larger one—are both made of durable stamped steel and offer simple, attractive storage for EDC gear, loose nuts and bolts, or anything you’d normally toss in your kitchen junk drawer. Each set is made in Italy and comes in a stealth color exclusive to Cool Material. For all the valuable knickknacks strewn around the house or tossed haphazardly on your workbench, these boxes are ready to placate your inner organizational fiend.
