Pergola Swing/Day Bed Swing

I made the swing out of old deck boards. The pressure treated 6×6′s are cemented 4 feet in the ground. The top two boards are 10 feet long by 3 inches thick by 10 inches high I used large 10,000lb bolts for the weight and look (yes over kill) . I sewed water and bed bug mattress cover on cushions then outdoor material over top. I used our old original queen size foam mattress from our camper. I bought large springs for more comfort but haven’t put them in the chain yet. I have one coat of gel stain and about 5 coats of urethane. I used tools and hand carved the ends and routed the edges.

Wow that’s a beautiful place for an afternoon nap. Nice wood working skills too, the details are fantastic. I bet every kid in the neighbourhood is on it whenever they can. Well done!

Thank you:) still working on the landscaping around it. Kids enjoy it for sure.

That’s a nice one. Solid for sure.
Once you are done with the landscaping, it will standout even more.
