I finally finished my outdoor swing and A-frame. The frame is made of PT (4”x4” and 4”x6”). The swing is made of cedar.
I had a heck of a time figuring out the miter cuts for the frame, until I finally realized, no matter what angle you make the top miter, the bottom miter must add up to 90 degrees. DUH!!!!!

It looks good, comfortable and inviting. Great to relax under the shade of the tree after a day’s work. Well done!
