Very nice, looks perfect for this nice weather. Did you use a plan or how did you figure out the curve profile?

Great looking porch swing. How long is it? Looks big.
hhhopks; I just yesterday had to replace some hardware for a porch swing I built last May. I used 1/2” x 6” J hooks that the chain fit tight on. The swinging motion caused one of the J hooks to snap into at the last thread on the hook. No one was hurt and the swing wasn’t damaged but I learned that the chain needs to pivot freely at the hook connection.

the swing is a 6ft. & it has 4- 3” supports underneath , so my big frends can set in it.

Hey lumberjocks, I don”t have any plans! I just go by memory. I’ve made so many of them that I know how each one is made.
