  2. Cedar porch swing and structure

  6. Fail and recovery - Porch Swing

    Started a "Weekend Project" - a porch swing for my wife. I liken it to the "Killer Rabbit" of Monty Python fame: A seemingly easy task the proves somewhat more problematic than anticipated.

  11. Adirondack Chairs & Porch Swing

    I made this furniture from cedar fence board purchased from a big box store. This seemed like a good idea at first, but if I had a mulligan I would pay a bit extra for better stock. I used plans for the chairs and improvised with the ottomans and porch swing. I can't say that I use the...
  12. Redwood porch swing from reclaimed decking

    This is a porch swing that I made for my mother. I used reclaimed redwood decking from a customer's deck that I replaced a couple years ago.

  19. Cedar Porch Swing

    The untreated pine porch swing that I made 8 years ago had finally deteriorated to the point that it could no longer support people. I decided to replace it with one made of Eastern Red Cedar with some improvements. I copied the seat and back curves from my original swing as they were very...

    My first Cedar porch swing can be seen in an earlier project posting. The lessons I learned from that first attempt are all incorporated here in this second one.
