The Ultimate Swing, Made from Reclaimed Wood

Michelle Slatalla August 24, 2012

Spotted on Terrain, a new way to recycle old floor joists is to make them fly:

Above: A slab of pinewood, liberated from its previous life as a floorboard support in a 19th century house, serves as a generously sized seat for a Reclaimed Floor Joist Tree Swing; it’s $298 from Terrain.

Above: Each floor joist is a one-of-a-kind swing seat.

Above: Tied with a five-loop fisherman’s knot, the swing comes with 25 feet of rope.

Above: Tying instructions included. (N.B.: For more ways to while away an afternoon, see “5 Favorites: Backyard Play Structures.“)
