A very large Seesaw I built for fun.
I built this Seesaw to bring out to my friends recreational property in Wisconsin. I don’t recall the exact dimensions, but I think it is about 20’ long. I cut a circular hole in the middle of the main beam and installed a galvanized pipe as a pivot.
I built the base in my basement out of 4x and 2x material.
It turned out to be quite heavy, so I had to ratchet it up the steps.
I installed a U shaped pipe handle by both seats.
Overall it has worked well.
The base is rather narrow, but less tippy then I’d expected when used on level ground. I would next time pour some concrete or stake it in with rebar.
The handles could use some padding - as you can get pretty airborne and come crashing down on the seat, and need to hold on tight.
