After completing the adirondack chairs posted earlier, I decided it was time to build that porch swing. This is what I came up with. I had a pattern for the chairs but had to wing this one on my own using the chair pattern only as a guide. I finished this late in the fall so we have not had much time to enjoy it. Soon, very soon!

Dang, that’s a good looking swing and green really sets it off. I like it.

Good looking swing.

If and when I ever build my shop and get my back porch bake I may use this design to replace the regular one I had. That way my wife and I can set on the porch “justa swinging.”

Now that’s one cleaverly designed porch swing. You should get many years use out of it.

Hmmm. We had an Adirondack chair years ago and one of the back legs busted. I told the wife I should cut the other leg off and hang it from chains.

She was quick to point out that we didnt have a porch, nor did we have a tree big enough to use, so into the trash it went.

I really LIKE your version!

Really beautiful porch swing. Like the design, great build and the color. Will be one of the family’s favorite spot in the house for sure.

Have your say...
