Default Building Swingset out of recycled material

Has anyone tried doing this? I saw a book a long time ago where the author had built swingsets out of recycled materials for next to nothing, like tires, pipes, etc. wondering how difficult it is and how cheap it is. also, if anyone knows of this book, I'd love tot ake a look at it again, but don't remember the name.

it is very easy to use reclaimed wood to build anything you want.there is more work with old lumber but sometimes the old looks better than the new
.here is a example of what you can do with reclaimed wood.
