I love army camo for BM. It gives sufficient shade, doesn't care about wind and is stable even when parts of the netting may rip.
I decided to make a support that I could make at home and set up in the least amount of time and that would not fail. Not the best looking shade out there by any means, but which side of the shade is important anyway LOL?
I use four 4x4 8' corner posts.
At the top of each, I put two eye bolts and instead of using nuts for tightening, use "eye nuts" (pic below) so that I now have four eyes (one coming from each face) on the top of the pole.
There are four 3/16 SS cables with hooks on all ends. When laid out on the playa in a perfect rectangle, where they meet will exactly mark where the 4x4's are placed. Two of the eyes on the 4x4's are for the wire, the other two eyes are for the guy ropes. When the wire is on the playa, I like to put in a thick rebar straight into the playa with about 6" exposed, and I've pre-drilled the 4x4's (6" deep of course) to slip right over the rebar. The 4x4's will actually stand upright while assembling the structure which makes it possible for one person to do the entire set-up.
From the locations where the pre-made wires touch at 90degrees on the playa, one will measure out the proper location for two guy ropes, at 45degrees to the corners, and put in deep rebar with candy cane going into playa, in essence making an "eye". I use non-stretch heavy rope for guys as wire would be dangerous and almost impossible to anchor in exactly the right position. Turnbuckles on the wire will only take up a few inches of slack....not enough, but rope can be adjusted wherever the playa stakes are placed.
My 4 wires for the canopy are much longer than the span can hold without sinking, so I use 10foot 2x2's to jack the wire up (makes the tension better than turnbuckles). If there is sag in "the middle" I use 12foot 2x2's with a plastic bowl screwed into the top to support the camo. All these 2x2 supports make the thing very tight. (loose anything being closer to failure than tight stuff.)
I use nylon ties and alligator type clamps to hold on all the camo, and use seperate pieces of camo for the roof and for the sides. Also, any type of shading can work well on the sides...even cheapy roll up blinds used in canopied porches.
A big advantage of this set up is that it is really easy to add on all kinds of shade material from all the wires and posts. I've built out considerably from the main structure to accomodate people who show up with a tent but no shade.
Mine is about 50feet x 20feet
