That’s a really nice glider. It should last a good long time since it’s made of pressure treated lumber. Did you use bearings in the gliding mechanism?

Good looking glider.
I am just curious. Most if not all the benches sold at the stores, have seats a little short to support the legs better. Did you lengthen if slightly?

looks great . I built one the only thing i every built from plans did not turn out well. Put on porch my wife does not like it. It sets bad and the back is not high enough.

I used Bronze bushings as a bearings around carriage bolts but only in moving arm, The bench is 19” at seat height and 20” deep at seat area, which makes it very comfortable with a 15 degree tilt that well forces a little recline. Sorry I’m not much for blogging projects. But if you have question I’d be happy to try to answer, I don’t use plans I make what I feel it should be. Both were fun to build and are identical.
