I built this swingset for my kids (a two year old daughter and 14 month twin boys) a few months ago. So far, they have been loving it. They obviously can’t use the monkey bars yet, but decided to install it while I was building. I didn’t think they would be able to use the rock wall either, but suprisingly, my two year old climbed it from day one. I used pressure treated pine for everything then stained it to give it a nicer look.
I bought a Rigid compound mitre saw and a Freud router to build it, because the only power tool I owned was a skill saw. This was my first time using both a router and mitre saw, and quickly fell in love with both. I am hoping to slowly acquire more power tools and learn more about woodworking with other woods besides dimensional pine. I have been following the site for a while and picked up many great tips which helped me during this project, so thanks.
