Do-It-Yourself Porch Swing

You can build this beautiful do-it-yourself porch swing that will be a perfect place to rest on a cool summer evening. It’s strong and durable, plus you can hang it on the porch or build a support frame so it can be used anywhere. The article gives step-by-step instructions for building both the swing and the support frame. Detailed plans are included.

Most of the project is joined using screws and glue, but the support beam is attached to the legs with carriage bolts.
