Porch swing bed made from SYP out of myself and my neighbors 100+ year old homes. HAD to buy a mortising machine and got acquainted with the mortise and Tenon joint. I have done some mortise and Tenon prior, but there sure were a lot on this project. I got my dad, ex-Navy diver, to help me with the rope work. He introduced me to woodworking so it’s a passion we share. Thanks for looking.

Nice swing bed, looks like a great place to spend any day of the week.
Well done.
