Looks great! I hate staining and painting. Started telling family I'll build anything, you paint it. I get less requests now. Wife always helps with our stuff... she hates it equally so I guess that's fair.

Dale,
How did you attach the 10 gauge knobs to the cabinet without screwing through the primer? Great job on the project!!

I filled them with epoxy, then screwed into the epoxy from the back after it dried. DO NOT DO THIS. The epoxy down in the bottom never really hardened...even after months, and what did harden didn't hold a screw that well. If I did it again I would fill them with JB weld or the like, or cut some wood plugs with a hole saw and gorilla glue them inside.

Well Tim, it's like I told my wife the other day...I know where it's at, I know it needs to be done, and I will get it done! There is no use reminding me about it every other month....

All we've done for a month is baseball, easter, and yard work...

Leavin the zip ties on until I can find something to wrap the ends with to keep them from fraying.

Could you unscrew the eye on the bottom and slide a big piece of heat shrink tubing over the ends to keep it from fraying?

Looks awesome BTW! People like you are the reason my wife thinks I should be able to make anything she finds on Pintrest!

I thought about that...but for one I aint unscrewin nuthin! That natural fiber rope is just lookin for a reason to come un-wound, also I want to try to keep it looking natural, or at least old. I think I'm gonna try to serve it with rusty bailin wire about 1 1/2" wide.


You don't know how bad I hate Pinterest....I told her no more pinterest until 2018.

Man that swing turned out great! I bet there were a few four letter words stated in that hanging process.
You could use braided fishing line to keep it from fraying.
