How to make a Rope Swing
This is more or less your traditional basic rope swing, which might be seen hanging from the branch of a suitable tree in many a yard.
In our case, although we were lucky enough to have a tree that was big enough and strong enough to cope with a swing, unfortunately it did not have a suitable branch. So.... we made our own branch from of a beam secured with rope to other branches on the tree. We also made three different seat types to see which would be the one most preferred.
We made the swing strong enough to support an adult, as our hunch that big kids and adults would use the rope swing as much as smaller kids proved correct.
