Swing Gazebo


This was for a customer of mine. He wanted to surprise his wife while she was away with their children on a sprink break vacation. We have a similar swing at our church, and he asked if we could replicate it in his yard at home. We agreed upon a price, the materials were delivered, and I constructed the project. All material is pressure treated wood, and the scrolls were cut by hand, then sanded. He will allow the wood to "cure" over the summer, then apply stain in the fall for a finished look.
