I finally got started on my swing project today.  After consulting several swing options and compiling my ideal swing in my head, I got them sketched out on paper.

I realized right away that the method I used to build my pallet sectional sofa was not going to work for my swing.  As I looked at my stack of pallets, I realized there would be a complete dismantling of all the pallets to achieve my vision.   This resulted in more consulting of the web and I can tell you for certain…..there is one fast and easy method to dismantle a pallet.  All others would require an increase in visits to the chiropractor!

A sawzall with an all metal 12 inch blade is the DEAL!  It is definitely easier as a two person job, although one person with a lot of patience and strength could make their way through it.  My husband and I recorded a sample video of the process so you could see just how easy it is…..really, it is.  And, added bonus……no boards broken that weren’t already in that condition.

We dismantled all 15 pallets and now I am ready to get moving on the build.

While out and about today, I came across some pallets outside of a place of business.   I try never to miss an opportunity for free stuff and also, I just love meeting new people.  So, I stopped in and asked if I could have said pallets……as they say in sales “they can’t say no unless you ask”!  LOL!   Luckily, the answer was yes!  I also had to load all 15 pallets by myself…..must remember to put a pair of work gloves in my truck.  🙂

So, now I have what I need for my next project…..a front porch bed swing.  So excited to get started!

Stay tuned for progress pictures……
