How to build a Bench Swing
Step 1. Make up the two end frames
Begin by making up the two end frames so that one mirrors the other.
Cut the members (a), (b), (d), (e), (f), (h), and (i) to the dimensions as shown in the cutting list on the previous page.
When nailing the members together ensure that no nails will be in the way of where the bolt holes will be.
Make up the two end frames using the drawings below as a guide.
Note that the inner seat frame ends (b) are a different width than the outer seat frame ends (a) by 20mm (3/4") which is the thickness of the seat slats.
First nail, and then bolt the horizontal members (a), (b), (f) to the vertical members (d) and (e) with 10mm (3/8") coach (carriage) bolts. The spacers (h) and (i) can be fixed with screws.
