That is very nice. Did you draw the plans also? What kind of wood is that? It looks like cedar, but sine I cant really tell the difference right now I am probably wrong. Great job!

Nice swing! I really like the way you moved the chain away from the armrest.

This is a wonderful swing. I agree with Charlie about moving the chain. That is a nice touch.

Thanks for the post.

That is a great porch swing. I bet they will enjoy kicking back and relaxing on it.

If I had a porch that’s just the kind of swing I’d want on it.

A nice looking porch swing I need to refinish mine so that I can post it. It’s had a few years of use.

Nice job on that swing! I can tell it’s comfortable just by looking at it. It has an inviting look to it.

I was searching Porch Swings and came across this one. Very nice style and lines to it. Good build. I hope you don”t mind, I may build something like it.
