I made this for my wife who has been asking me for years for a porch swing. My excuse to not make it was that we didn’t have a porch. ;)

Everything is made from western red cedar, except the seat slats which are a clear white cedar. The bench was based off of a plan I had in a book and the structure was made going off a few ideas I saw/liked online.

Now if only it would stop snowing so I can put this outside.

Thanks for looking
