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 DaveR. Couldn’t have done it without you.

I should also add, I couldn’t have done it without the help of my son.

The swing was purchased from a company named EZ Hang Chair. The arms are laminated oak.

Jack, it’s pretty much going to stay where it is. Eventually I’m going to set up a bed of crushed white rock to put it on and then a fire pit in front of it.
