My wife is wanting to replace our old metal swing form the kids. Do
any of you know where free plans are or examples such as a good
picture of a children's wooden "play area" could get an idea of what
I agree with Lew. I bought the book linked below and it's been a nice
(Amazon.com product link shortened)
I wish I could build more than just the simple swing set I have built
from the book, but with 2 busy parents and a 20 month old it's hard to
find the time to get out there and get work like that done.
The simple swing set I built based on the plans in the book cost me
around $100 in materials to build and the equivalent of a weekend
worth of work. I did it mostly myself but a sturdy helping hand will
be a big help when it comes time to drop the frame into the holes.
When you can buy this book and get it shipped to your door for less
than $10, and it has not only a few swing sets but nice plans for a
number of other plans I can't see it being a bad purchase.
PS: if you do build this yourself, consider buying a pneumatic palm
nailer. It'll come in handy when you're putting the corner braces on
the bottom of the frame.
