I am looking for free/cheap yet very sturdy set of plans/kit to make a 10ft mega tree.

Any websites/ideas would be appreciated.

Randi,

Chuck gave you Darryl Brown's site. If you chose to use that one, let me know. I have one of his, and can give you some pointers.

Like "don't follow the directions explicitly because they are wrong?" :P

(It looks as if he's redesigned them since I got mine.)

He has since mine as well, but even outside of that, there are things I changed, like the hook head, height to match light string lengths etc...
