For Swingers Only

After water blasting the fence and then waiting 3 days for it to completely dry so it could be painted wouldn't you know it, it buckets down all weekend. Naturally instead of painting the fence I built a swing.

The rope is 11mm static climbing rope, the seat is a piece of H 3.2 pine painted with outdoor furniture oil and the four knots are bowlines. The rope was run through short lengths of garden hose looped over the branch of the tree and secured with very large builders staples. I used a spirit level on the seat to make sure it was level. Not bad for my first swing building effort ever, it gets some serious air and some very strange looks from people driving by.
