This is from earlier this summer. I had built a deck last year and had a bunch of left over treated 2×10’s in various lengths and no real need for them so I decided to make some swings. Took some time ripping down the slats to size but other than that nothing much more involved. The shape was trial and error at first. I literally cut the shapes I believed would be comfortable (after looking up basic dimensions for seat depth and back height) and then either leaned on or placed on my leg. I’m sure there could’ve been a better option, but in the end it really turned out to be comfy. This one went to my parents. My Dad had built my Mom a swing some 30 years ago and it was on it’s last leg, however, the frame was still in good shape. Made a few others for friends and one for myself.
