How to make a homemade Pizza Oven
Porch-Swing Fire Pit
Actually we had one in a store i worked in from the Ukraine, it was far more ornate and delicate but I would maintain you would get one solid swing and hit out of it. It would likely lodge in someone before the handle broke at the weak point which was only about 1/2 inch thick and the spikes were much smaller. It would have been enough for one emergency and this build is closer to a baseball bat, especially if the dowel is hickory. Yes, it wouldn't last too long but as long as the intruder didn't have a gun this would protect you quite well and at least thwart his attempted robbery and likely land him for a good stay in the hospital and possibly kill him. If you build this and actually hold it i would wager it would feel safer then you think, and still look really cool above a mantle
