If you're making a prop like this and are having trouble drilling through an exceptionally hard piece of steel, take the part out of your prop and heat it up with a torch until it changes color into the reds and starts to glow some, then allow it to air cool to the touch (don't quench it in water or you'll have wasted your effort). This will soften the metal so that you can drill through it easier, if you want to harden it again after you're done, reheat to the same color and then quench it in room temperature water.

I did this same design on a tree house I built for my kids 25 years ago. I took it down last year when a windstorm dropped another tree across one of the sides and snapped the beam. It hadn't been used much in the last 7 years, but was still holding fine when I disassembled it. Now with grands coming for frequent visits, I'm going to build another :).One important point to point out when using more than 3 trees is that you also need to allow for the tree movement 'spreading' apart from each other. With my house, it initially started causing the floor joists between the beams (which all floated) to get pulled away from the beams. I had to install a cable binding the beams together and making my floating bracket about 5" wide (2-1/2 the thickness of the beam that was floating). This worked for several years until the tree grew and took up much of this space, then I had to back out the bolts (which didn't work so well either, so I ended up replacing the entire brackets in 2 of the 3 cases. I saw a show (TOH ???) where they bored a hole through the tree and drove a PVC tub that had an inner diameter exactly matching the bolt diameter that they passed through. This then allowed the bolt to be loosened as the tree grew without the tree 'adhering' to the bolt threads.
