Project Information

This new swing has a 1000 lb load limit, made from approx. 200 board feet of red cedar per set its the biggest heaviest thing I build. Stand is made from 4×6 cedar and top is 3×8 beam. Swing has a flat back with notched pickets and seat is scooped. The swings front brace is a solid 3×8 also. Lots of fun to build- moving those big beams around the shop is a workout!

That swing looks mighty comfortable Adam.
And the strength of the build can assure a couple of heavier people that they are safe to have a pleasant swing.
That is a great thing to have when the evenings are nice and it's time to sit out on the porch.
Nice job buddy.

Looks really good, it's hard to beat the look of cedar for outdoor furniture. How did you come up with the 1000lb limit; did you sit heavier and heavier people on the swing until it collapsed and then rebuilt it???

What did you finish these with?
