That's a neat swing, Doug.

I know a couple that make swings and are doing an encreasingly good business.  One of their designs is a small, one-child swing that looks like the grown-ups swing.

Nice job !! Is that Oak??
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

Thanks for the comments ;D

That is a great swing, Doug. 8)  I am sure glade my wife does not come to this site.  I would surely be in trouble if she saw that swing.  I would have to build one.   :-/  Not only that, I would first have to build the poarch for the swing.  ;D Very nice job.  Did you design the swing yourself of borrow the plans?

Great swing, Dug!

I think I am going to be doing some building in July/August, but I'll probably be using MDF, plywood and 2x4's. My classroom needs some different furniture, and I'm kind of getting tired of juggling the stuff I have around.

My classroom is huge, but oddly shaped. It is an old locker room, completed with a shower room that I use as a coatroom/storage room - with the plumbing removed, of course! The old soap dishes are still there, though.

I've got some ideas of what I want to build, but that would mean that I'd have to stay away from the computer for a while.  :(
