What else to do on a sunny day.

It is the perfect excuse to make and swing a swing!

Let's get started shall we ?

Step 1: Materials

All you need is this :

  • Some jute to make jute cords
  • A cord that is long enough , 20m will be enough.
  • A sharp knive
  • 2 metal hooks
  • A needle
  • Some thread

Step 2: The Idea..

The idea was to weave a cord and attatche it to some wooding pipes.
This, just to make it comfortable.

Step 3: Let's Get Started..

Now let's get started, shall we?

The first thing you need to do is this :

  • Cut off 4 same sized jute cords ( CA 40 CM )
  • Cut off 3 same sized jute cords ( CA 30 CM )
  • Attatch the ends to eachother.
  • Repeat this for evry side and each jute cord.

The video of this can be found here.

Step 4: Step 2: the Woorden Parts

  • For this we need some strong wooden beams, in this tutorial i used 4,5 x 3,5 sized wooden beams.
    To know the size of the beams , i weaved the stitched cord into eachother to see how long the beams had to be.
    Make sure the beam overlap with the width of your wooden beam ( here is this 3,5CM )
  • Then i marked where they had to be cut off , this is the end-result:
  • Now you have to drill a hole with the same width of you 20m cord. ( which is in my case 8mm )
  1. First make the markpoint by putting the beams on eachother ,so they fit. After that , you mark the center of the 2 beams.
  2. Start drilling the centerpoints.

Step 5: Finishing Up.

To finish up , make sure your cords are weaved like this :

Futher more .. To use the chair , i made this 30 seconds movie.
