I wanted to use a 4x6 for a beam for two swings, with eye bolts with washers through the whole beam vertically. However I do not have access to 4x6. I can buy two 2x6, but how would bolts work? Since bolts would be in between of two 2x6 I am thinking the holding capacity is not as high as through a 4x6 because of the gap between two boards.
Any thoughts on how to hang two swings on two sandwiched 2x6?
