To my great regret, now the dacha has become for usOnly one of several ways to implement the food program. The truth is sometimes all the same you want to have a good rest. To maximize the comfort we need to own a site in the country, reserved for recreation. Swings always create an unusual atmosphere and perfectly fit into the recreation area. As a rule, children ride on them, but quite often, many adults can not resist the temptation to feel like a child. Of course, the easiest way is to just buy such a swing. True, if you do not want to spend a lot of money on this, I propose to make a swing for the children with their own hands, with minimal costs. If you decide to do the work yourself,you immediately have several advantages. Firstly, when buying very rarely, you get exactly such swings as you want, and by doing it yourself, you can make all your fantasies come true. Secondly, as such a design, you will be most confident, since no one will take care of your safety as you do. Thirdly, this decision allows you to save a lot of money. As the main material usually actswood, because when working with metal you will constantly have to use welding and other not all available tools. Therefore, the right type of wood wakes up ideal material for use. So, let me outline in general terms how to make a wooden swing for the dacha with your own hands. Basic structure Of course, we will start with the bearing supports of ourconstructions. The most practical and sustainable option is the design in the form of an inverted "V" consisting of four inclined racks. I think you should not be clever and invent new methods, it's better just to bury the foundations in the ground to a depth of about half a meter and additionally strengthen them with gravel mixed with cement. Parts of the tree, which will be underground, must necessarily be isolated by wrapping a roofing material. The gap between the installed stands should be a distance of 0.5 - 2 meters. Crossbar For its manufacture we will needa beam of dimensions 100 per 100 millimeters. Its quality should be given special attention, since the main load will go to it. This crossbar you need to fix with the help of long screws, designed specifically for wood, then above it is necessary to mark two crossbars, similar dimensions, as well as the main bar. To the cross members, we have to suspend to attach the connecting elements between the seat and the crossbar, which will be as much as possible durable. Suspension Conventional chains, in my opinion, the best optionfor such a fastening, the main thing is that its links are not bent, but welded. A chain consisting of rings of about 2-3 cm in length and wire with a cross section of 3 to 4 mm will withstand a three-hundred kilogram load. In this case, the seat will be held on 4 such circuits, so this option suits us the most. By the way, do not try to make only 2 chains, because in this case the seat will start to scroll as soon as you sit on it, and it will be impossible to skate. Sitting In the conclusion it remained to make a seat,for which we need two boards and two bars (40 by 50 mm). Board thickness of 40 mm is needed to create a backrest and the seat itself, although the back does not have to be so thick. All parts of the seats are connected with galvanized screws, then it is fixed to the chains with stainless bolts and on this assembly the swing can be considered complete. Here you can build such wonderful swings on your dacha section!
