who doesn’t love a good porch swing ?? ... this project was commissioned by one of our designer clients for an outdoor setting at a new home in northern vermont … it was pretty straightforward mortise and tenon work, but required a little special engineering involving stainless steel hanger bolts where the corners intersected. it’s 80 inches wide, so we had to figure it would possibly have to handle a pretty big load at times. vacation house parties and all … we used reclaimed chestnut, which, with a little maintenance, will weather well in the outdoors. we used a penofin finish and sam made the custom hooks in our metal shop. there’s a very short you tube video showing it fully loaded and the hardware we found online to hang it with … sweet project … i think i need one myself somewhere … more process photos on our dorset custom furniture blog.
