I built several porch swings for last christmas to give to family members. I also built one other swing that I ended up selling. I am now building another one to try and sell in my front yard for a little extra money. I made this swing out 2×4 cedar and 1 1/4 thick cedar for the slats. I used galvanized hardware and stainless steel screws to fasten the slats in place.

Very nice! I really favor the rounded top and seat front.
I must make one of these for the wife!
Do you have plans to share?

Nice job. I’ve made three porch swings and I need to refinish mine because of the weather getting under the porch.
