Cut and Paint Swing Seats
Create three seats by cutting a 2x6 into three 21" long sections. Once the seats are cut, drill a hole in all four corners, then use paintbrush or mini roller to coat them with exterior paint.
Attach Swings to Chains
Insert 2-1/2" eyehooks secured with lock washers and nuts into each drilled hole in seats (Image 1). Slide a carabiner around each eyehook then secure the chain to the seat and screw each carabiner to lock into place (Images 2 and 3).
You need just basic woodworking tools and lumber to construct our updated version of a classic kids' swing set.
