I like the shape of the swing. Thought about making one but wondered what to paint it with to withstand the outdoor weather. Is a marine varnish the best?

Marine varnish would be great.

Looks comfortable. Very nice job.
My son and DIL have asked me to build one.
Did you use plans?

It’s beautiful and comfy as well. Like the curved back and seat. Very lucky daughter!
