Just finished this swing made with cider and cup cut in the center and fold up when not in use. My grand daughter love this one on her front porch. Excuse my ignorance but this is my first time using LumberJocks. I have had a couple request asking for more pictures of the swing hanging or in use. Don’t know how to answer each request yet. As soon as I get those pictures I will try to send them.

Coolest swing I ever saw. I wish I was still in our old house where we had the porch to put it on. I’d be making one of these. Great idea.

Nice swing, it’s the American dream to sit on your front porch, and have a nice swing, while watching the world go by. Cool beverage on a hot Summers day, I’m relaxed just looking at it.

Thanks for posting.

Very well done. Looks like one I need to keep in mind for later.

Wow, that’s really nice Ken. I’d like to see some pics of it swinging, or at least hanging, too. Great job.

I hope my wife doesn’t see this. She will want one!

Great job!

Looks fantastic! I’m hoping to be able to make one very similar.
