I made this swing with rough cedar. Because I wanted something a little different, I welded horse shoes together and framed them in for the back of the swing. The swing is finished with teak oil. All of the screw holes were plugged with dowels. All of the chains are hung from the seat of the swing to provide more support. If you want to watch the video of this build, here is the link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RaGP1U8Oz_4

Nice porch swing. I can imagine myself in it with cold beer.
