I found a model for a swing pergola on Sketchup and decided to build it for my swing. I used scaffolding to assemble the top portion so I didn’t have to keep moving ladders around. I haven’t applied a finish to the pressure treated structure yet as it is still wet. I will use an exterior stain in a couple of months after the wood has dried somewhat.

I really like that and you did a great job. I have been looking at building one and yours is the best I have seen.
