I think it looks pretty good. Be careful. I don't know how much you weight but you really don't know what that stand will support. Its a great when you can make something yourself but don't let it turn into a nightmare and have it fail on you. PLEASE BE CAREFUL!!!!!

Basically what I'm saying is that you do not know how much weight the wood you used is rated for. With time and weather, it can degrade further at an unknown rate. Not even a quality manufactured stand is 'for sure.' Be safe.

It looks kinda heavy to me. I used to make my own stands similar to yours. I feel safer buying a quality manufactured stand now that I am older and not as spry as I once was.

You don't plan to be in it very long do you? I hope you don't weigh much.

My thoughts....

What would its weight capacity be...?

Try it at two feet first.
Good luck
I'm not trying to be critical but please be careful.

Everyone who has posted has a point. That aside here's my take on it. Looks good!! Might not be the most comfortable thing to sit on and maybe a touch heavy but heck I would use it and love every minute of it if I made it. I made alot of things as a kid and contemplated making a treestand too! I am sure it's plenty safe for you and I think you should be very proud of what you made. Good going!

Do wear a harness though if you dont. Not because of your stand but just the fact you are in a trestand. I dont care who you are; if you in a treestand you should have a harness one. Happy hunting!

Strap looks weak

I have broke s strap like your on my truck with no effort i would op for a 2000# test Model

That look like a Chinese made job with no QC testing

Load capacity will often exceed the real load when put on an angle etc



A year from you it might give way
