Re: Making Storage Pouches In a Canvas Tent

Thanks. Im so much closer on my search than I was in the beginning. Biggest challenge is finding things that have zippers/sleeves which have a "lid" or cover to it which you zip closed. Self-contained seems very important for MOOP. Also found some storage for on-site garbage sorting (I usually do it...

Re: Making Storage Pouches In a Canvas Tent

DoctorIKnow, Thanks for the item referrral. Since this velcro might go onto the tent's canvas "walls", Im still down to not knowing what I need to sew (hand sew) things onto a large canvas piece like that. One canvas company mentioned a sewing awl as something that could pierce canvas well enough fo...

Re: Making Storage Pouches In a Canvas Tent

Thank Bob and Jackasss! These are the very things I was looking for but had no idea what they were called. Obviously not a camping item so even my camping equipment retailers didnt seem to have something like it there. They look like they could break down. I guess I just have to get some zip ties. A...

Re: Making Storage Pouches In a Canvas Tent

Might help to state the style and brand of tent. Also, read your manual. If it has internal tie points, use those. Otherwise I'd avoid compromising the canvas cover. In a high wind and/or rain your articles hanging off the sides may pound against the cover and cause leaks or rips. Dollar stores aro...

Making Storage Pouches In a Canvas Tent

Hello there I am heading out to playa this year with my 6 person canvas camping tent. The tent has held up for a nice year at Burning Man but I do want to upgrade and add storage to the tent to be more efficient with my tent space inside. So, I wanted to build zip pouches into the tent for things li...

My wife came up with the brilliant idea of going to Burning Man in 1999. I thought, why would I go to the fucking desert for fun? I eventually gave in.

Yup. I seem to only be able to go every other year (Went in 2007 and in 2009). Still, Im glad I didnt go.

I have no idea what you mean by a straight line between base and mouth. What size do you need (circumference and depth)?

Have you tried a store that specializes in plastics? I don't know how thick you need it to be, but you might get some thinner weight cobalt plastic sheets & then heat-form them into the shape you need. Try either TAPP Plastics in SF or Canal Plastics in NYC. I've had great luck with both places, an...

Rats. Its a bit lighter than the color I seek. Glacier ice is about 2 shades lighter than cobalt.

The hunt continues? Anyone else know?
