This lawn glider plan is a classic that many of you will recognize from your local hot dog or ice cream stand. If you are from the WNY area, you might recognize this from Taffy’s (Orchard Park) or Pautlers (Clarence).
The lawn glider has a simple mechanism and rather than hanging from a bulky structure to glide or swing, this runs along a curved board with a set of wheels. The wheels used in the plan are like “track wheels” with a single side flange. Try as I might, I was not able to locate a matching set. However, I set of mower wheels might do the trick. If anyone locates track style wheels (7″ plastic) could you please share in the comments below? You can find man mower wheels at Amazon (link).
This plan should be a fun one and you might find yourself deciding to go into business selling to every local ice cream stand and grill. Good luck with your build.
