Getting ready to make ours and looking at lots of swings. How are you going to attach the chains?

Sweet! Looks really comfortable. Looks like someone will be spending relaxing hours on the front porch.

I like the gentle, interrupted bridge curve in the back top rail…and the center back splat…really nice details. Looks great overall! Thanks for showing.

Great looking swing. Beautiful job. Every afternoon I drink my coffee in an oak swing built by my father before I was born. I’m almost 70 now. Bet I’ve traveled a million miles in that swing.
