DIY Children's Swing
Here is a simple and fairly cheap small swing for little toddlers under 40lbs.
pressure treated 2x4 lumber
1"x8"x6' pine board
eye bolts with nut and washer
Here is a google sketchup that has the dimensions on it (I would post up the sketchup file but Picasa Web only allows images). The swing is pretty much self-explanatory. Cut lumber to length. Screw together. I left out the seats because you may want a wider or narrow seat. I went seats 13" wide. I probably should've made them a tad bit narrow, but oh well.
I used rope instead of chains because rope is way cheaper compared to chains. I also think that the rope will feel more pleasant to my kids hands.
Painting always makes any project look great. My daughter wanted purple and luckily I had two tones of purple. I think the frame looks much better with two colors instead of one solid color.
Hope you enjoyed this. Here are more pictures, please ignore the junks in the background.
