Looks like a nice sturdy swing I like the design in th eback, it breaks it up nicely, you will have to post updated photos once you get the frame built.

Well done – looks like it would hold quite a bit of weight – so I would feel safe sitting on it :-)).

Whoa, better hang that with some 3/8” welded link chain! Very nice looking, and treated too? Should last a life time. ENJOY!
