2 projects to check off my spring tp-do list. Not much scroll sawing on this but I thought I would share it to hope inspire anyone else. I made the swing part a couple weeks ago, then spent this past weekend building the pergola for the swing to hang from. We sat 3 people on it(600lbs) and it didn't budge so I hope it will last a very long time. I will stain it in a year the cedar color to match my deck. All is made from pressure treated lumber. I drew up some of my own plans and took 1 step at a time. I am very pleased the way it turned out. I also added a new fire pit. All comments good or bad are welcome. Thank You

 

Now it's time to get back to my scroll sawing..........

Fantastic job Dan! It looks like a nice place to sit on a warm summer evening, drinking a cold beer, and watching the Mrs. mow the lawn. Lol
