The original posting of this bench was on 3/2/12. The bench was 17 years old at that time. Recently I noticed a picture of a glider bench for sale and thought the design of the bench was similar to mine. So I measured, built the cradle from 2×4s with the side pieces double 3/4 pine to support the end tabs that the brackets attach to. The cradle is all mortise and tendon joints and painted (obviously) the same green as the original bench. The cradle has rubber feet to deter the bench walking around the porch. Works nice.
