I always wanted one of these.
Found design and ideas in a garden magazine and traced it to manufacturer – siting spiritually. This site has some very beautiful garden furniture. No plans though, so I built from a personal sketch.

Made out of pine, treated with Alpina wood protector, then Alpina lacquer fir for outside projects.

Dimensions: 4 x 15 cms for holders (waaaay too much wood used) . Top is a 4×20 cm plank cut in the middle using a curve and then bottom cuttout is added on top. Small strips are approx. 4,5×2,5 cms.

Smaller spacer at the bottom, larger at the top for the backrest angles.

No bandsaw here. All jigsaw, table saw and an electrical screwdriver.

Nice work on this very nice swing. There’s more than one thing in particular I like here that I am going to “borrow” on my upcoming swing.

Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful bench. I’ll bet Alpena isn’t a brand I can get my hands on in Grand Haven, Michigan. Thank you.
