Making garden swing start with carriersupport. Assemble the bottom frame, which will be attached to the vertical rails. As for the size of the boards for the frame, it depends on the size of the desired swing seat. The best option is to seat depth of 50-60 cm and a length of about 160-180 cm. The frame is wider swing seats must be about 40-50 cm to ensure their sustainability.
Bars securely fasten metal corners. If the swings are not located on the tiled / an asphalt / concrete surfaces, and on the open ground, then to avoid or delay the process of rotting wood beams bottom of the frame to be processed bitumen. In addition, all wooden parts for garden swings should be treated with special antiseptics. When the frame is ready for it with the help of screws and parts are mounted vertical bars that will serve as pillars. As a result, you get 2 large triangles. These top of the need to attach a horizontal crossbar.
Now you can start manufacturing shops. We must act in the same sequence, starting with the implementation of the framework of the bars. Framework should have two pieces - one seat and one for the back. After that, a framework or plywood screw or nail rails.
Connect the back corners of the seat. The angle between the seat and back should be about 120 ° in order to achieve greater comfort for travelers. Further, armrests can be fastened - 2 bar interconnected at an angle of 90 °. However, this is not necessary, because you can do without the armrests. Fix the brackets or hooks on the top of the bar, pass through the openings the chain or wire. Its length, measure so that when sitting on the swing could socks to get to the ground. After that, fasten seat.
On the main part of the work on manufacturinggarden swing made. However, you can not dwell on this and, for example, to add a tent ready to swing. To this end, the frame of the bars stretch any fabric and fix the resulting tilt toward the top of the swing. Next nuance - the stiffness-seat bench.

Flight logs must have a length of about 1 m. And arrange a "branch" should be at a height of 2.6 m above the ground.
We should not forget that the main thing in the design - its safety, especially if you are making a swing for children. After completion of the work do not forget to check out the finished product strength.</ Blockquote>

Rope to tie the branch or beam, making a loop and 3 knots. The distance between the ropes should be from 50 cm. Using the same loop of rope knots and then attached to the seat.
For rope swing seat can be made of 2small logs 70 cm long with a diameter of about 8.5 cm and the distance between the ropes 50 cm. Rope rewound between the logs and wrap around each of them, tying at 3 knots. Against the backdrop of the garden are garden swing looks attractive and naturally, but they are not always convenient.
