Do a lot of hobby wood workers do like myself and just “wing it” when building things? I dont like plans. I look at a picture and then figure out whatever dimensions and then build! My sister wanted a new porch swing so I asked her how wide? 48”, 60” or 72”? She said her old one was 48” so thats what she wanted. Thats all I needed and boom, in a slow afternoon, a porch swing is created.
The slats were part of that large pallet of bed frames, rails, etc… I have $6 in the studs and then some screws so around $10 in this project… oh and then eye bolts, so $17. She is thrilled so thats all that matters. She’s painting it.
Great thing about her is she lives 300 miles from me so its giving my wife and I a mini vacation traveling to see her and spend a couple days with her family. And she is already planning the painting of this project when we arrive so she is excited.
