Skateboard decks are designed to support one's bodyweight yet be flexible to absorb changes. Meaning, they're kinda ideal for making other stuff to play on...like this swing project. Ben from Homemade Modern took a cue from sk8swing.com and whipped up this adjustable swing how-to that'll work for kids (standing included) but can handle an average adult as well.
The use of the skateboard deck adds a sense of style and intentional design, making this guy look at home in any yard, whether you have kids or not. I'm digging it.
