Category: Furniture - Back Yard Swing With Drink Holders
Drink Holder Folded Up
I seen a picture on the internet of this type of swing and became interested in building it when I seen the the drink holders. I used 2X6 1" treated deck boards ripped down to an 1 1/4" for the slats. Put a 3/8" round over on each one. Ripped 1" slats for the top and botom contours.Used the Kreg pocket hole system to fasten the arm rest to the uprights. I didn't want to spend to much money on stock (such as redwood)untill I completed one. The most difficult task was finding the pivot point for the drink holder so that it would sit level when in the down position.
"I live in NJ, and wish there was a physical store near where I live. My experience with rockler.com is second to none. Not only are your products first rate, but customer service/product support is exceptional. I've called several times, and never received someone on the other end of the phone who was anything but extremely helpful, patient, and friendly. The biggest compliment I can give is that I TRUST Rockler for all my woodworking needs. The only other store I can say that about is LL Bean. My wood working friends in western NJ love Rockler. Keep on keepin' on - and get a store here in Jersey!!" -
