Custom chair lift swing

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Our local hill (Granite Peak Ski Area, in Wausau, WI) removed an old chair lift over the summer.  I bought some of the chairs, and built this custom chair lift swing.  I had the chair shortened by 3', and then had it stripped and powder coated along with all the hardware. The wood is red cedar, sanded with 3 coats of stain.  What do you think?

You wanna make one for me? That's a great piece of work.

Actually, yes I will make you one!  I am selling them as a fundraiser for Granite Peak Ski Team (  The price is $1200, and 100% of that goes to the team (I am donating all materials/labor).  The swing will disassemble to fit on a 4x8 pallet.  I'm not sure what your shipping cost would be, probably $400-$500.  I can also do the chair/hardware powder coated in any color if you'd rather not have it in black.

That might be the best use of an old chairlift I've seen. Love the red cedar - great job!
