This is a 4’ wide porch swing constructed of Arkansas Cypress, from a plan purchased from the Winfield Collection web site. I am finishing it with several coats of spar varnish before hanging it. I have requests to make two more for friends

This is a very nice project. Like Adirondack chairs, porch swings like this are both popular and timeless. I am not surprised that you have requests for more.

Very well done.

Thanks for the post.
