Swing No picture No picture No picture No picture No picture

This is a swing I made for my Father and Mother-in-law. They had a swing already there, but it was in bad shape, and my Father-in-law was just getting back from open heart surgery. And I was afraid the old swing was going to break on him. The table, which my Father-in-law didn’t put on right, and I hadn’t noticed before this picture, can be slid from left to right, or just removed from the swing. He evidently removed it, and didn’t place it back on right. But he enjoyed that swing, up until his last days.

That’s a beauty. I love these because they are so relaxing.

Thanks! It made of treated pine. My father-in-law must have really liked it, because my Brother-in-law said that his dad sat there and hand painted it with two coats of primer and 2 coats of paint.

A good looking swing. It should give years of the simple pleasure that having a swing brings. What are the dimensions?
