My 1st real woodworking project. Mom asked for a new porch swing to replace the old one at camp. I figured it would make a nice Christmas present.
After looking at a bunch of designs, I went with this one I found on Instructables. A nice write-up with templates, and CUPHOLDERS!
I made some modifications to her design, wider seat, beefier supports, more seat supports. I may make further changes after I hang it and see how it works.
Made of PT and untreated pine.

It’s nicely done and looks very comfortable.
