Not very advanced woodwork skills are needed but you require at least an intermediate skill level in order to accomplish this task. Some swings can be created with very basic woodworking skills. But please remember that your kid’s safety will be involved when he or she will play this week so it is important for you to take precautionary measures in building this. And a very beginner level skill set will not enough to do this. To accomplish this task you must have the intermediate-level skills.


Plan The project of making a baby Swing

This is important to plan the project before starting it. the planning includes the design of the place where you will install the swing and the material needed and acquired to build the swing.

Here we will describe step by step process to build a very basic baby swing of 2 by 4 size. You may adjust the place and the raw material as per your requirements.  which will certainly depend on the increase or decrease in size.

Material Description with Caption

The material description as indicated in the picture. We have divided the swing into 5 sections ABCD and E These are all wood pieces of different lengths and width.

Section A

In section A we have four pieces each one of them is 88 inches long. This will make the four legs of the swing and will provide it the basic infrastructure to stand upon. this too will act as the legs of the swing

Section B

Section B is comprised of 6 different wood pieces. these pieces are in three pairs . two pieces are 56.25 inches long two faces are 16.75 inches long and the remaining two pieces are point 6.25 inches long. These pieces will provide support to the main infrastructure. These 6 pieces will act as the princess for or the swing and will hold the different pieces together.

 Section C

Section C is comprised of two pieces 96 inches long These two pieces when combined together and fitted on the swing will make the top be of the swing. It is important that the stop being must be strong enough to hold the swing.  insect not only capable enough to hold the swing but you must be capable enough to bear the to and fro motion of the swing. 

 Section D

This section is again comprised of braces like section b. The differences are in the number of braces and the location.  These braces will provide sport and act as a joint between the top Beam and the remaining swing infrastructure. the length of these wooden pieces is 23.25 inches. 

Section E

This section has four different species of wood at each side two of them 56.25 inches long. next 240 9.75 inches the next is 43 inches the next 36.5 inches long and the last one is 23.5 inches long. 20 wooden pieces will not only provide the sport to the swing but will also act as steps for children playing.

Additional Raw material

The Other raw material needed while making the swing included  8 inches long 12 pieces of wood . two different kinds of screws the difference is not in the type of sucrose but in the length of the screws.  the two different lengths are 2.5 and 4.5. Then a jar of glue to bind, filler to fill the gaps in the wood. The concrete to put in the base off the swing.  this will help to make the swing stand. And I forgot the most important thing the swing itself and the clumps to hold the swing.

Tools needed to build the swing

In order to complete this task, you need a concrete mixture, a hole digger, covering tape and framing level a saw and a drill machine. 

Safety is an important element to consider while doing any labor-intensive job to protect yourself we have recommended you to wear safety glove and safety glasses while working on this project.

Steps to perform 

This is the step by step guide to making an easy and basic swing. Let’s start the work.

Ist Step

First thing first the four legs off the swing wooden pieces as shown in the diagram put both the pieces together so that 20 pieces created an angle of 22 degrees with each other.
Be sure that you make the edge of the wooden leg as shown in the diagram. For this, you will need a saw. 

2nd Step

Next is to put the next together with the help of the braces set the braces on the indicated places as shown in the diagram. Put the legs on a plane surface. Mark each brace with the pencil so that you can make the cut with the help of the saw at both ends. Please remember that the angle should be 22 degrees.  Place the braces properly on the legs. Mark again with the pencil so that you can create the hole at the marked point with the help of a drill. After drilling with the help of the screwdriver put a screw of 2.5 in the hole and screw it as tightly as possible so that it can hold the legs properly.

3rd Step

The third step is to arrange the base on the top of the swing. This is important to place the base properly on the top. This base will not hold the swing together and provide a joint from the top. But will also work as an hanger to hold the swing. Because this is where the swing clumps will be placed. in order to hold the swing.

First, you need to glue the boats so that they can be stick together for further confirmation we will join them together with the help of 2.5 screws. in this process, you again need to mark the place where you will put the screws. Drill that place makes a hole and then with the help of the screwdriver. 

Fit the board at the appropriate place as shown in the figure.  we will join the board with the legs with the help of screws again.  but this time we will use vi use of different lengths this time we will use the screws of 4.5.

Repeat the same process using the pencil to Mark,  then drill to make a hole and finally use the screwdriver to put the screws in the hole and tight them. 

4th Step

In the fourth step, we will put the steps on the legs as described in the given picture at the appropriate places. To do this the same process will be repeated here. First, we will mark the legs at the appropriate places.  remember all the steps must be separated by equal space. drill bit and put the screws of 2.5 in which hole to tie the Steps with the legs off the swing. 

5th Step

Now is the time to provide some additional sport between the top and the legs as shown in the light blue color in the diagram. Place this wood Pieces as shown in the diagram.  with the help of the saw make a cut at both ends but this time the cut should be of 45 degrees. 

Adjust with the top Bheem so that it can lock then tied together with the screws. Again repeating the same procedure that is to Mark with the pencil then read the whole and then do it with the help of a screwdriver.repeat this procedure for all three Sports .

6th Step

Place the Sewing where you want to fit in the ground.  make holes of ½ feet at the all four four footstep. Fill these holes with the concrete and wait for a day that it can take its shape to turn into solid and grip the swing properly. 

This is the time to take care of the holes on the swing due to the woodwork performed on it.  usually, you will find it on the top of the screws use you put into the wood. Rub this with the Sandpaper and fill it with the filler.

Final Step and Future Care
