My wife wanted to get my inlaws a porch swing for Christmas. After seeing the price of low quality treated ones, I agreed to build one. So I finally found the time this past week to start on it and popped it together in a couple of evenings. I figured it’s only 5 months late so that’s not too bad for woodworkers. Anyway, It’s gonna be in a screened in porch so I just finished it with a few coats of tung oil. Thanks!

This is a wonderful swing and you’ve done a fine job on this.
