Wooden bench swing – are no longer just children’s thing. How would you like to have one in your garden and enjoy it all summer ? In today’s article I propose to make a swing using as main piece a wooden pallet. In addition to being decorative, it is fun, functional and very simple to make. And best of all, we learn to recycle. If you follow every step I give you to build it, you will be amazed at the end result. If you are attracted to the idea, I encourage you to help me build this nice swing. DIY for the more babysitters!
The first thing to do is to repair the wood of the pallet and for that; we have to sand the piece well. If it is not in very bad condition and is not very large, with sandpaper will suffice, but do well and conscientiously for good results. Spend more time at the corners to get them sanded. Paint it the color you want with special paint for wood and fat brush. The wooden bench swing that we propose for the garden will be held in the branches of a tree. Make sure the branches are strong enough to support the weight of the swing and the person riding on it.

In this step, you will have to measure well the height at which you will hang the swing in four parts. To prevent it from fraying when you cut it, put tape on it and you will see that it no longer happens to you. The last step to complete our wooden bench swing is to make a knot through the front and back of the pallet and also through the trunk of the tree. Make a knot as strong as possible and if it is double, the better. Any safety measures you take are good, so do not hesitate.
