Cut Slats at an Angle
Holding the 1x4 up to the A-frame, use a pencil to mark the angle on the back of the slat and remove (Image 1). Cut angle ends on each 1x4 slat using a table saw (Image 2).
Attach Slats One Side at a Time
Using exterior wood screws, attach 1x4 slats using a scrap piece of 2x4 to create equal spacing between slats.
Prime and Paint Swing Set
Using HVLP paint sprayer, prime all wood surfaces including the back sides of each A-frame structure with attached slats (Image 1). Choose desired exterior paint color and once the primer has dried, paint the entire swing set frame (Image 2).
