( special tanks to my dad , he made this swing)
7x 75 cm of 50mm pvc tube (total of 5.25m of tube) take 2 short pieces to connect the bends to the y pieces this is not included in the total length
2 y pieces
6 eye screws
2 chains of 140cm in length
And a board of 70 x 42 cm
A hack/pvc saw
A wood saw if the board is not the right size
Plaiers in case you need to open the eye screws
Step 1: Sizes
Take al your parts and cut everything to size
Pvc pipe to 75 cm
Chain to 140cm
And the board to 70 x 42 cm and sand over the sharp corners
Step 2: The Frame
Take 4 of your bends and 4 of your pipes and make 2 U shapes (see picture 1).
Now connect the y parts to your U shapes (see picture 2) you should now have a triangle structure .

And screw in the eyes. Like picture 4
Now connect the ends of the chain to eyes along the short side of the board do the same thing on the other side .
