  • Nice addition to your fence! What was most challenging for you?
    By RYOBI NATION, on July 16, 2018
    • The biggest challenge was not having the appropriate tools for the job. As an example, I really needed a drill press. I used a level and the one+ drill/driver to drill holes through both sides of the 2x12, 4x4, 2x12 stack. Additionally, I did some creative hammering to get the 7” carriage bolts through evenly.

    • I will say that getting the 60-75 lbs. structure 10’ in the air and over the two support 4x4s, by myself, caused it’s own set of challenges.  Some creative lever and pulley actions mixed with moving blankets, bar clamps and extending ladders somehow made it happen. Stressful!!

    • Looks like you definitely overcame those obstacles and it turned out really nicely!

  • Super nice job on this! What was your favorite part of this project?
    By RYOBI NATION, on July 16, 2018
    • Putting the last screw in so it was done. Ha, no, I actually liked the manual labor, I have a desk job so just being outside so much and working with my hands on it was a nice stress reliever.

  • This is a super solid sweet bench for swinging! Most definitely better when you make it yourself and will last for many years.

  • Hello, I tried making a board like that with different wood but it flexed. How did you stop it cupping/flexing?

    • Made a jig out of plywood to hold everything until the glue fully dried

  • What a solid build! Did you burn the wood to get that look?
    By RYOBI NATION, on July 16, 2018
    • No wood burning. I used some very aged treated lumber. An I applied an acid wash used for cleaning decks an sanded it down real good an put 3 coats of  polyurethane clear over it.
