You can also use _long_ carriage bolts for the uprights bolted
into the piece of plywood for the base with a piece of wood for
attaching the cords and adjusting the tension with wing nuts on
the carrage bolts.  Not elegant, but functional.

By all means leave the road when you wish.  That is precisely the use
of a road:  to reach individually chosen points of departure.  By all
means break the rules,  and break them beautifully,  deliberately and
well. That is one of the ends for which they exist.
