Porch Swing

  • cost of the white oak
I built this swing from your magazine article for my daughter and her family. It was made from the white oak as suggested and came out great. I had a friend engrave the Family name on one of the back slats. Her family love it and it really added comfort to the front porch. This was my first project after taking classes at Wood Technology Seattle. I have read Wood Magazine since 1989 and finally decided to learn the right way to work safely with power tools. Thanks for the great projects from you magazine.

Great plans, easy to follow!

  • good for beginners
  • simple to follow plans
  • none
I've built a number of porch swings using these easy-to-follow plans from treated lumber from Lowe's.

I built the first one several years ago and it still looks and works great!

Using the large printout, I made hardboard templates of all the parts. I can make one or one hundred now!
