I am going to build a sky bed lounger. ( a 4-pod swing made from a trampoline) I have the 4 point steel bracket that needs 4x4 wood in each slot. It looks like this:
I would like this to hold a 6-foot trampoline base (just base no legs etc) which is roughly 4 stone in weight. What is the best wood that will be strong enough to hold this structure and what screws would I need for the bottom? I'd secure rope from each bottom base to secure the legs of the swing and stop the wood bending.
