My first Cedar porch swing can be seen in an earlier project posting. The lessons I learned from that first attempt are all incorporated here in this second one.
This second swing was ordered from a woman who saw the first one but wanted a few changes. It was much easier to build and I didn’t make nearly as many mistakes along the way. The bottom rails are purposely too long and lacking hardware since the customer did not have measurements for me and was willing to trim to fit and ad hardware when they delivered it to the cabin it was being installed into.
I am very happy with this swing and am looking forward to making many more like it. I’ll be building quite a few of these this year and delivering them out to the west coast.
