    Ash Porch Swing

    Lets try this again. Something happened so this is my second attempt.
    Built from Shop Notes plans. Modified to 6ft long for 3 adults, other mods too, such as back support. Not visible in pic but because of the length of the back rest it wanted to flex in back. Not now!
    Finished in Teak Oil.

    Now that is sweet, I'll bet you spend many a fine day or evening setting out on the porch on that

    Donald, that's a great-looking porch swing. I'll bet you get a lot of comfortable miles out of it...without ever leaving home.

    Don't believe those are cup holders you saw.
    Methinks they are cut-outs for the chain.

    Nice work Donald. My Brother-in-law built a few out of oak. Even made a miniature one for my sister. It hangs over her center island in their kitchen as her spice rack.
