This here is the second project i started my second year in woods at school. It took me about 2 months to complete.. and thats what one hour a day working on it.. I decided to make it out of maple.. Being strong and not as heavy, like if i would have made it out of oak. I finished it with a tung oil and 2 coats of polyurethane. Turned out nice id say. I got all the roller’s from I was a great project. very stong as well.. I can fit 4 of my big friends on it with no problem.. I use it in my man cave. :)

2 months? No surprise there- that’s a lot of different things it can do, all those different positions.

A nice looking piece Matthew. Looks like time well spent. When I saw the tumbnail picture I thought that you had made a porch swing. BTW, if you make a porch swing, make the back slats horizontal not vertical. Horizontaly the slats will improve structural integity and they are more comfortable. Easier to make it curve to fit your back.
