Porch swing I made for our new wrap around porch. When I was in Iraq I thought how nice this would be. So first we built the porch then I built the swing. There is nothing like drinking a pint of New Glarus Spotted Cow and swinging on the porch swing on a summers evening. Its one of those little promises I made to myself when I was 9,000 miles away in the Middle East

Nice swing. I like the way the chain is outside the armrail.

It looks really comfortable and the outrigger for the chain is a great idea. Nice to know the back story. Cheers!

It looks perfect in there. Masterly done.
