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.
24 – 3″ Deck screws for screwing the top 2×6 stabilizers to the 6×6’s
10- 3/8×8″ eyebolts with nuts and washers for hanging the swings
The beauty of a project like this is that you can customize your own – use it as inspiration!
