This swing is 6’ long and made from 5/4 pressure treated lumber. It has a relief cut in the seat and a contoured back so it is really comfortable. Thanks for looking

Porch swings are good, I have coffee on one just about every morning. It looks like you did a good job on that one Hoss.

Nice job Hoss. I’m pretty sure I could do some serious napping in that baby. A little shade, a cold one, swing a little, sip a little, lights out. Oh yeah!

Thanks for the inspiration. I’m supposed to build a bench for our tiny porch and I may try a smaller version of this. I think she (therefore, I) will be very pleased with a bench like that.

Although I’m not sure how to make it float without the chains the way your first pic looks, I know exactly how to get the second pic – we have an open bar here :)
