Cui nu-i place un foc de tabara?

Ce poatre fi mai bine decat sa stai la un foc de tabara cu o bere in mana? Pescuitul 🙂


Iata un proiect indraznet cu leagane.

“It took me just about 3 days, first day was digging the holes and setting the uprights. All the wood is pressure treated 6×6’s. Next day was finishing building it. and the 3’rd was spreading the gravel and setting the fire pit and staining the pressure treated. I bought the swings offline from Louisana Cypress Swings and Things and had to wait a week or more for them to be shipped.

I din’t have any building instructions to go by, pretty much just winged it. I layed out the hexagon in the yard so that center for the uprights for each bay was 7′ apart because I knew I wanted to get 5′ swings. I had 14′ from each upright to the upright opposite of it. I’m not sure what the angles were, I just took two pieces of scrap and layed them up there and messed around cutting a few until I got the angle right. We got all the top pieces set up there before lagging them all in. Left one bay swingless so that I could carry firewood in.

I got 6x6x10’s for the uprights and they are sacreeted almost 3 feet in the ground. I guess its a little over 7 feet to the bottom of the 6x6x8’s on top.

Materials I used were
6- Bags of Sacreete (or Quickcreete – whatever you call it) one for each upright.
6- 6x6x10’s (for the uprights)
6- 6x6x8’s for the top sections
6- 2x6x8’s for the stabilizers that go kitty corner on top of 6×6’s (for strength)
24- 3/8’s x 8″ lags for laggin the top horizontal pieces to the uprights (countersunk)
24- 4″ Deck screws for screwing the top pieces together horizontally before lagging them.
24 – 3″ Deck screws for screwing the top 2×6 stabilizers to the 6×6’s
10- 3/8×8” eyebolts with nuts and washers for hanging the swings

Hope this helps with anyone that’s looking to give it a shot. Thanks for all the compliments.
Much appreciated.
