Awesome Fire Pit Swing Set DIY Project...

What’s better than sitting around a campfire drinking beer? How bout swinging around a campfire drinking beer? A beautiful summer evening with a backyard fire pit is the perfect gathering spot for family and friends.

It took me just about 3 days, the first day was digging the holes and setting the uprights. All the wood is pressure treated 6×6’s. The next day was spent finishing to build it and the 3rd 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 didn’t have any building instructions to go by, pretty much just winged it. I laid 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 laid 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

The fastest way ever to screw up expensive clothing with the smell of smoke and spark holes, then spend half the night coughing because of smoke particulate inhalation.

Build it, use it once.
