Thats cool, was hoping someone did. The size specs in one of the descriptions was 34 height at rail, 22 wide and a 36 slide. So that side panel is like 22 x 22. I would double all dims. The slide is Masonite and I would reinforce that with plywood.

we had a jungle gym but i cant find an image of it. unlike the ones in parks the metal rods it was composed of were hollow. made it a little precarious, well a little more precarious.

  • How about following the current project with adult scale version?

  • I found a sit on wooden crane. The cars, trucks and tractors rock. Gas station. 
     

    I wish I could hire you to fab it for me.

  • Will you scale up the board thickness as well?  Using 5/4" where 3'4" is used in the original for example?

  • Yeah, I plan to scale it once I get it n hand to measure. But I would also like to go off the shelf sizes. Like Im hoping those corner post scale up to 4x4 and that the slide rails are 2x6s

    • Scaled up with standard board thicknesses makes sense.

    • I’ll outsource the ladder and get them to route the round hole in the plywood. I don't have the tools or skills for that.  First version will be pine. Perhaps do a second one in maple or leave that option open pending interest.
