I thought I would save money by building my own Lawn Swing, Man was I wrong It cost me more than double, oh well it will certainly last longer.

Believe me, used saved money in the long run, not to mention the frustration of a cheap import piece when it breaks, or all the pieces aren’t there when you try to put it together. Besides you have to add in the value you got from doing it yourself! Enjoy the swing and let the good times roll!!

I was going to let the Arizona sun do it’s thing with it. I am not opposed to applying a finish, but I don’t know what, if you have suggestions that have worked in the past I’ll consider it though. It is all Redwood, & steel. The support beam & legs have a custom made bracket hidden inside with a steel collar that houses the through bolts.

It may have cost more, BUT look nice and makes you wonder what kind of crap would you have gotten on the cheap?

Have your say...
