Made this frame and swing since I’m at home for a while. It’s all treated and stained. Deck is 6×10 top is 8×12. Swing is 70 inches long with 5’ of seating planter boxes are 12”x12”x40”. Very heavy I moved it by rolling it on PVC pipe.

Just plop that down next to your soccer field, and all the other soccer moms will be soooo envious!

Very nice. Did you use a plan, or is it your own design?

I don’t ever use plans ..I draw a sketch or two on some paper sometimes. I mostly just wing it..I built one in my head while I was doing this one.

Very rewarding project. Well done.
