  • swing set

    I am building a wooden swing set for my kids. I would like to build a set of monkey bars which would also support three swings. I am thinking about two 2" x 6" x 10's parallel with 3/4" threaded pipes w/railing flanges. Any more ideas? Welding is no problem.

        "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
        John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

          Bob We had fun . After work My 1948 C J 2A was filled with Brian and His Lil buds waitin for M. I lived in the country on Cape Cod. We would drive through the woods,often ,runing over small saplings. Each time I beeped the horn the Kids had to Yell" BEEP BEEP I'M A JEEP" One summer afternoon I had 14 Little guys crowded in that Jeep. Just called Brian and said We Gotta find an old Jeep for the Sierra property. We can take His Little 4 Year old Daughter on Jeep rides .

            Continuing my quest to be the cool dad on the block like you by building a playhouse. 3'x 6' porch, 6' x 8' house with swingset and slide.
            How do you think I should sheath the house and roof? T-111 plywood?
            Sorry for putting it on this section of the forum.
