  2. Tree Swing Seat

    My kids asked me to make them a swing. It was a very simple project to make. I used some 2×10 construction lumber. The seat measures 16" in diameter and is about 1 1/4" thick. I added some clear tubing to the rope to reduce rope burn. The kids really enjoy it. But isn't that what it's really all...

  17. Swing Arbor

    Good weekend project. Built from rough cut cedar. The design is partly mine, but the sketchup drawn by DaveR was the inspiration. I modified DaveR's drawing just a little because I couldn't find any cedar wider that 4 inches and some of the pieces called for a 2 X 6. Thanks for the drawing...
