Subject: ROPE BRIDGE
I've spent so many hours searching for information on rope bridge design and found very little info.
I'm close to building my bridge as soon as I finish the floor joists on tree house number 2 of three. After pricing galvanized chain and and bolts and having a heart attack , I'm looking into using cable, which is much cheaper and should do the job. I plan on running the cables first and then setting the 2x6 planks on top of the cables. I will route out a groove on the under side of each plank, just deep enough so the cables are recessed into the plank. I will then nail a piece of wood to the underside to keep the planks from bouncing free of the cabels. I think 1/4 plywood would be just fine for this.
Hope this helped,
