Anyone know where to get online a wooden swing set frame?

I am thinking I can just buy the frame and then get my own swings to hang on it but I Am yet unable to find the frame only for sale online.

 

I did find some wooden frame only for porch swings that could work but generally I want a wooden frame swingset and think it would be cheaper for me to buy the frame seperately. Any ideas where to get one?

Maybe not exactly what you are looking for, but we built a wooden playset this last summer.  We bought the plans online and also got the swings, slides, and tire swing from the same place.  After alot of searching around, we found that their prices were about a low as anything else we could find.  We then bought the lumber at our local lumber yard and built it according to the plans.  It is great and nearly as nice as a large rainbow playsystem for less than a quarter of the price.  We got it done in about two weekends.

thanks! that is a nice one. I am actually looking for just the swing frame at this point. seems simple but maybe people don't make them? all I can find for un adorned swing frames are for porch swing types= but I suppose that could work- not sure.

Dh and I are not handy- dh could probably put together a kit== but y'know I should look into the one you did just in case

your post got me thinking that any swing set I would order online me and dh would have to put together nayway so why not look for a kit to make it cheaper- so I looked up swing set kits and found this

which may be what I am looking for- a simple wooden fram to hang swings of my choice on.

 

Anyone know where to get non plastic- more fabric (canvas?) type of swing seats?I don't know the terminology for it but a simple sling swing not out of plastic rubber whatever but of canvas type fabric

Lightbulb Wooden Swing

Hey There!
For finding a swing made of tough wood like teak or rosewood and can be stored without any issues will be a difficult task but I saw some most Tough swings at http://www.madhurya.com/single-plank-jhula.html
Lots of Love!
