So the Wife wanted a Glider for Mothers Day, definatly something I could do. Looked around for some plans and hardware. Found a few but didn’t like the looks, so I found a hanging bench design I liked and modified it into a glider. (rockler had these new rotohinges available) , wow I thought, I can modify the angle and the lenght of travel with these. Anyway constructed everything out to pressure treated (doens’t take tiebond III well) Bult stands to hang bench from, mortised and tennond all joints in stands (lots of movement) alinged all the rotohinges equally on either side and guess what… Its stuck. One thing that I forgot to account for is now I have three sepreate pieces which can move indpendantly causing one side to rack out and the other to rack in, now I’m just grinding wood aginst wood. I do have some idea to fix it but I”m open to suggestions.
