Test - fase : I made a simple concept of what my swing would look like and tested it for strenght and endurance.
Step 1: Swing Step 2
I cut the right diameters out of a 500 by 1500 mm Vuren wood panel.
Step 2: Swing : Step 3
Then I stick the different diameters on each other and fixed it with a threaded rod and fixed it in the lathe. I made sure that the whole swing was balanced. And made some edge blends for a smouth design and makes it easier to wind up the rope.
Step 3: Swing : Step 4
When I was done with the milling a but adhesive on the panels and stick them all together. than I drilled 4 holes in the bodem panel so the swing can be worn like a backpack.
Step 4: Swing : Step 5
Then I painted the whole swing and put the rope on it.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
