my mom dropped a last minute project into my lap just before mothers day. She has always wanted a swinging bench for the backyard. instead of just buying one i figured i could build one far cheaper and the way she wanted it. The frame is made of douglas fir 2×4s and a doug fir 4×4 for the top support. The bench itself is made of 1×3 pine furring strips(i’m still rather new to woodworking so my materials are pretty primitive) it has four different looks to it depending on what she wanted to do with it. the head rests are removable as well as the folding center console. its not perfect by any means but i think it came out great. finished it off with some exterior stain. Even caught part of the poochs head in the last pic =)
