Re: Get swinging!

Made the Mk II a while back but took me ages to finish! Sort of lost momentum with it and to be honest was a pain using natural wood as the frame.

Done now but quite a long fiddly job - not sure I'd make another.....! This one out of walnut. Stainless steel chain and fittings.

Very poor quality pics (iphone ) but gives the idea.

That is lovely Rob, even has a sense of movement in the frame.

Re: Get swinging!

Thanks gents - it's on display in a little known seller of teak garden furniture!


Am not looking forward to delivering it if it sells.
