I designed an outdoor bench for a client this past spring that he wanted to match his porch swing. He wanted built in cat boxes with a seat that lifts up so he could clean out the cat boxes easily. He liked that bench so well I ended up building two more benches without the cat boxes for this patio beside his pond. I haven’t found the pictures of that bench yet, but it did inspire me to build the same style of bench and turned it into a glider. It is made out of treated pine.

Looks great! What did you use for the mechanical parts?

Hey this would match my porch swing pretty good, too!

Love it!

Mitet,

The ball bearing glider brackets were bought online for $17 for 4 or at Rockler for $22 for 4, 1/4” x 2 1/2” carriage bolts, 1/4” fender washers, & 1/4” lock washers.

Thanks for the comments. I really appreciate them.
