Outdoor Bench Swing

Well it’s been a while to post a project but I did got busy again with a couple of not so small ones for a friend of mine.
An Outdoor Bench Swing made out of Meranti wood except the two arm rest (run out of stock) which where made from iroko wood. Finished with outdoor decking oil.
The swing accessories I got them out from an old swing and man did those heavy duty swing spring hooks made a huge difference… so smooth !!!

It looks like some some piece of furniture from the finest furniture design magazine. The wood itself looks realy beautiful. Armrest, although ’’Plan B’’, turned out great. I bet it’s sturdy as it looks.
