Default Playground

This project took a lot out of me labor wise. Still some staining let to do but health issues got me down so I’ll have to finish next year.

What Bill said! You built that for the whole neighborhood? 'Cause that's who's coming over.

Holy Cow! That's amazing and wonderful. Neighborhood kids are going to want to come over to play in it, espcially in summer. Is the yellow slide a commercial item? Also curious about the ground cover. I lived near a park that had shredded rubber to cushion falls

You seem pretty young to be having health issues, so I hope all goes well and that you recover fully. I do hope it isn't sawdust related? It doesn't take much sawdust in your lungs to mess you up.

Thanks everyone.
Tom, that is a commercial slide called Turbo Slide and just the slide itself, the yellow part was given to me by a guy at work. He had it for his kids until the grew up and when I said I was building a playground he offered it to me. I had to build a structure to hook it to and that’s wat I came up with.
On the health issues I’ve had some back and foot pain since 2010 and they just got so severe I’ve been working like crazy with the doctors to give me some relief. I had foot surgery 3 weeks ago and am hopeful I’ll get relief.
You’re right, I am too young to be having medical issues and am sorry to bore you with the details.

Today I started organizing my shop for my Christmas gift project and am looking forward to making something again.

I hope you’re all well.

You done good. But you're gonna have to put a lift on it before I'll come visit, those steps would likely kill my back and knees.

That should put a lot of smiles on the kids for years to come. Well done.
