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.

Brian,

This is a work of art. Kids will really enjoy playing on this. Best of luck with the back and feet. I am going to Sports Medicine to see a spine specialist in December. Physical therapy helped, but back is still aching. Not sure if Arthritis and bone spurs are fixable, but having it checked.

Brian,
Your children are lucky to have a father that can create something so useful and beautiful. I'm sure they will enjoy it for a long time.

That is a great play set! Lucky kids! The rubber mulch must have been a job. My wife was director of our church daycare for about 13 years. She could go by a park, school, daycare, and tell to the nearest dollar what the playground cost. Not cheap! They used bark mulch as the rubber mulch was out of the budget.
As an aside, check with your insurance agent. When we moved once, the agent asked if we had a playground set. Had one from K-Mart or Walmart. He noted it and commented on the liability aspect of that or a swimming pool. People will be people, sad to say.

Hadn't thought of that. Maybe Bryan should have a lawyer draw up an agreement waiving liability claims and have parents sign it before their kids come over. Might also need to post a "rules" sign to make an agreement enforceable. Neighbor kids are going to want to play on it with your kids. CYA! :frown:

Who says Bryan made it for the kids. He might want to play on it all by himself!!!

People don't realize just how much time and $$ goes into something like that.

Interesting point on the Liability issue. The kids can't sign away their 'right' and how are you going to get every parent onboard?
The civic playgrounds just post Liability notices, and that must be acceptable???
