What’s better than sitting around a campfire drinking beer? How bout swinging around a campfire drinking beer!
At least, that’s what Dave Chenango was thinking when he posted the idea of a DIY backyard swing circle:

The list of materials he used for this DIY project were:

6- Bags of Sacreete (or Quickcreete – whatever you call it) one for each upright.
6- 6x6x10’s (for the uprights)
6- 6x6x8’s for the top sections
6- 2x6x8’s for the stabilizers that go kitty corner on top of 6×6’s (for strength)
24- 3/8’s x 8″ lags for laggin the top horizontal pieces to the uprights (countersunk)
24- 4″ Deck screws for screwing the top pieces together horizontally before lagging them.

A little dream of mine has always been to have a porch swing… At some point in time it’s gonna happen! Seeing as how we don’t have a porch, it won’t be happening any time soon, but that won’t stop me looking and perhaps making one!

You know how much we love pallets around here. You can do so much with them! This particular plan has an great look and is fairly simple! The basic process involves sawing the pallet in half, attaching eye hooks for your rope, stain and hang!  I love it.
