    I have completed the structure and stained the swings. I will be substituting two hammocks for swings and finishing the stain on the whole structure by next tuesday. Thanks for an awesome idea and I can't wait to post pictures of the finished product.

    I keep wondering, do the benches crash into one another? It looks like they could if you got a good swing going...

    It is possible to make them touch but you actually have to try pretty hard to do it. You just have to get good at syncronized swinging..lol..
