The untreated pine porch swing that I made 8 years ago had finally deteriorated to the point that it could no longer support people. I decided to replace it with one made of Eastern Red Cedar with some improvements. I copied the seat and back curves from my original swing as they were very comfortable then. I added the circle cutouts to hold a taped glass and used exterior screws to join the pieces together.
It sits and feels great and the BLO makes it POP!

Material: Eastern Red Cedar
Finish: BLO
Dimensions: 74” by 30” by 23”

The color of your cedar is very nice, The cedar that we have on the west coast does not have that color. nice work on the bench part.

great job, you’ll get a lot of relaxing time out of that project.
