This is a swing seat that I made for my god mother’s birthday about a year ago. It is made from pressure treated wood and has also been stained. The chain is stainless steel along with all of the other hardware. I have since made two more, one was a commission for my friend’s grandparents anniversary and the other a commission from my parents.

Way to go, Callum!

Just think- every time they enjoy that swing, they will think of you.

Very nice Callum. That swing looks like it will hang around for a while. I made some of those in school when I was your age for a fund raiser for our FFA. THe one that I made for myself is still hanging in my grand parents garage. Someday soon it will make a trip to my house where I will be put to use. Enjoy the times and the memories surrounding those swings.

You have made a beautiful swing. It is very stirdy and spacious. Stainless steel hardware is a great idea.

Nice structure. Very sturdy. Reminds me of the swing in my grandparents backyard many years ago.

Thanks for sharing.
