Step 6: almost done!

because we ended up running out of time we ended up finding the angle we wanted and securing it using extra pieces of wood but at this point if you would like, armrests are a very nice touch and can also provide structural support for the swing. the last step is to sand and stain the chain and last attach the chain. depending on how large you made the chair attach the chain using bolts so that is balances correctly for how you would like it to look.
<p>Lose the purple cushions but I want that! Is it actually stable?</p>
Not bad...though as mentioned, need to show the finished product. On a side note, I build a ton of repurposed &quot;stuff&quot; from pallets. To not lose the extra lengths, and have a much quicker breakdown, simply use a reciprocating saw (sawzall), with a metal blade and simply run down the gaps between the planks and the frame. No splintering or breaking. I can get a pallet apart, all usable pieces, in about 3-4 minutes. Just a tip!
<p>Not to mention they used a copyrighted photo in the first picture that they must of copied from someone's photogrophy portfolio. Very bad form on this...</p>
Pallets are 30-45 pounds per, 4 of them? Not a chance . Instructions and finished product photo are 2 completely different things. Jerks
I'm currently living in South Carolina. One of the big things here day bed porch swings ( for thousands of dollars). I can see this modified, probably using new lumber. Would be wonderful on an upstairs screened porch. <br><br>
<p>going through all the steps, you left out lots of information and the finished pictures don't look anything like the seat you made.....face palm....how could this be posted?</p>
<p>all in all this isn't a good instructable, why? why would you post it and think we would accept this as the real thing? what a let down. putting you on the do not bother with list</p>
<p>Yeah, the finished picture is definitely not the chair you made. I was hoping to see the actual finished project. </p>
This is really creative! Thank you for sharing the idea :)
I love this idea... But you instructions were quite Vague!! Especially for a new builder like myself! I'm exited to try this and have pallets all ready to go but I have to decipher between steps all the small cuts and angles. :(.
The swing in the picture does not resemble the one they built in the instructions...look at the back, the first one has thin strips of wood, set horizontally, theirs has wider pieces of wood set vertically. The bottom has the same inconsistencies. Why not show us what your swing actually turned out like?
Sweet! <br />
You mentioned using a jig saw in your text, but I didn't see one or read how you used it. <br> <br> ???
They meant circular saw.
