Text of Playset - YellaWood Playset Build a durable and fun playset for your children’s backyard...

  • Playset

    Build a durable and fun playset for your children’s backyard adventures. This playset calls for a slide and 2 swings and features a sturdy frame, 2 ladders, and a crow’s nest peer-out point with a raised platform.

    It is an outdoor fixture that will last and have the whole family spending more time outside.

    You’ll start with the construction of the A-frame supports, then move on to

    assembling the main skeleton. After that is raised, you will attach floor joists and install decking and outside walls.

    Make sure to take proper safety precautions including always wearing gloves, goggles and a dust mask when you’re cutting or sanding.

    Notes:

    All measurements are approximate. Cut stock in the correct sequence of steps because many dimensions are directly measured and will vary based on actual stock and construction.

    Board dimensions can vary, so be sure to measure your stock.

    We’ll begin by making three jigs. See page 7 for the measurements. The first one you’ll make is a Marking Jig for the tops of the 4x4 beams.

    For the Marking Jig, take a 4x4 part (A) and measure 102 ¾" on each post. Use the Marking jig to inscribe the cut lines. Then flip part (A) over and mark the other side too.

    The second jig is the Top Beam Spacer, used to align the top of the 4x4 beams during assembly of the A-frames. See dimensions on page 7 and make accordingly.

    You’ll need to do this to all 8 posts, marking both sides with cut lines. Next, cut on the inscribed lines using a circular saw to half depth. Flip the wood and cut through the remainder.

    If desired, use a belt sander on the cut surfaces to smooth out the faces.

    The third jig is a Spacer Jig that will be used for spacing the A-Frame side planks and ladder cladding. See dimensions on page 7 and make accordingly.

    A: Prep: Making Jigs and 4x4 Angle Cuts

    Tip: Need help, or have questions about how to cut these parts? Watch the video!

    Cuts: For each step, you can pre-cut all of the pieces listed in the Cutlist for each section.

    All four A-frames share the same basic structure, so you’ll repeat steps B1 - B6 four times. Use the Top Beam Spacer Jig and lay out two of the 4x4 posts into the A-frame position.

    Countersink part (G) with a half-inch Forstner bit.
