    Original porch swing

    This is the original porch swing I did in 2003. Looks nice and bright in this photo - I didn't keep up with the finish and its pretty dark now. But still comfortable!

    I varied from the plans on this one by inverting the curve on the back - the original one I built per the plans had rounded shoulders and it looked more slumpy to me...

    Adirondack Porch swing

    Just finished this swing for my parents. This is my second build of this design - first was for my wife and has been in use for about 10 years. The second one got some design/hardware upgrades and I think it turned out pretty well. The plans are here...

    How Can I Quieten A Porch Swing

    I bought a porch swing from Jack Leg and just got it mounted. As all porch swings mounted on chains make noise while swinging so I am not sure this is even possible. The problem is my son works weird shifts and when we swing we wake him up. The swing is mounted to two 2x10 trusses that support...

    Swing Stands

    Have any of you built a swing stand that is a little more than the standard "A" frame? :eusa_thinI'm going to build one for a client and I'd like to do something a bit more upscale. Perhaps a bit of an arched top? :icon_scra Any and all suggestions, especially plans and/or dimensions are...

    Porch Swing Construction Suggestions Wanted

    A friend of mine wants to build this for his daughter and son-in-law; this one has been in his family for at least 25 years, but protected from the elements on a porch. He's got a really limited budget so we're trying to save a bit where we can without compromising the structural strength of the...

    Porch swing

    My wife wanted a porch swing for her birthday, but she didn't want to wait a year for my usual re-invent the world version (bent wood, natural body contours, strength to hold the whole family, 40 step finishing process, etc...) So, I asked Reggie what he could do. We are very happy...

    Outdoor Swing Frame.....

    For those who might wonder, does he ever make anything? I was asked to build a frame for my parents newly aquired porch swing. The best part? The through holes for the bolts. They lined up. I just love a Shopsmith in horizontal boring mode! This was also my first time using...

    Swing Arm Saw

    First time I have seen one of these. Seems to me that the blade would swing up and toward the operator. How would this be used? It is a listing on eBay and part of the description says: "These saws are no longer allowed by OSHA in commercial shops" Can't imagine why. :eusa_thin

    "Richfield Pattern" Swing

    Here's a new swing we just finished today. It's a 4 footer. Used a pic from the internet, no plans, and just winged" it. This is the 3rd one we've made, modifying as we went, so I thought it was time to give it a "name." So--- I decided on "Richfield" because that's the area my partner's...

    Swing in, swing out?

    Yesterday I got my 6X6 DC closet dried in and shingled. I have a pre-hung exterior door ready to install, but :eusa_thin after looking at the interior space (now less than 5.5' square), I am concerned about the real estate the swing in door will use. So, :eusa_thin :eusa_thin I'm thinking...

    A swing for the younguns!

    This is a project I've been wanting to do for a while, so naturally I wait until we're in the middle of the biggest heat wave in recent memory to get it done! :eusa_doh: :lol: Our kids' old metal Toys-R-Us swingset has been looking pretty pitiful lately. It's rusty, squeaky, wobbly, and...
