    teeter totter

    I'm finally at a point in my trail where I can build a teetre totter on a fallen tree. My only problem is I dont know how. Can someone describe how and maybe show me some pics.

    Over a log like this?
    Use a plank, a metal pipe, metal pipe hangers and lag bolts to hold on tree. Also use pipe hangers and bolts to attach the pipe to the plank

    you can cut a notch out in the bottom of the totter beam for the pipe to fit into. Requires you to use a thickish beam though.
