”This swingset has to be sturdy enough for children older than 10yrs”

You can just say it’s for you… we won’t judge you… Heck I still go on the swings at the park with my son… :-)

Honestly though, when I was designing my son’s playset, I did a google image search for playsets and also ordered a catalog from one of the manufacturers CedarWorks they are pretty intense and their catalog lists some dimensions that are useful for determining scale of components… They also have great photos of small details of each design that help in figuring out angles, joints, and hardware to use…

Some of their playsets are pretty intense…
Look at the bent laminations for the slides, massive arches in the roof trusses and even the arches in the bridges…
