I think you may be able to get plans from Woodsmith. They had plans for one not as fancy as the one in your attached photo in Issue 98 of their Woodsmith magazine and I’m guessing they have converted the plans into a PDF which you can purchase.

Or you may be able to buy the issue or something similar.

I recall that April Wilkerson made one on her YouTube channel found this.

Hrmm… ok, she has done several variations for you to go through and look at.

This one is a two seat with drink holders: https://wilkerdos.com/2015/05/diy-cedar-porch-swing/

Have fun.

Thx for the replies. I was making adirondack gliders and got myself curious if I could use the same pattern for a swing…

Don’t see why not. As long as you get the anchor support spots worked out. Note, I have not made a porch swing as I have no porch for it.

Go find a store that sells the plastic Adirondacks. They will probably have a swing or double glider that is in the Adirondack style. You can get some ideas from them.

Berlin gardens out of Ohio is a really good company if you can find it. They have a great seat and design.

I can’t believe Jack needs more then a picture. Tell me it’s not so.
Wood working plans are good for starting the barbecue.

Not so much the picture but the degree of lean on the back.would be helpful. It’s easy to guess by making a pattern but not guaranteed. .

The adirondack glider I patterned off an old one. When I went to change the degree of the back it changed the whole back had tobe changed. Small can have big effects…

I have a lot of walnut I’m going to try and use up on some of either the glider or the swing…
