Check out this project on RYOBI Nation - When I was just a little boy, my Grandmother had a glider swing in her back yard. My sisters and I would visit often with my Mom. Every visit would include a ride on Grandma's swing. Such great memories were grown there on that swing. One day while surfing the internet I saw plans to build your own glider swing. I sent for the plans, and with some improvements to the design, built it. Now it is my grand kids making memories on my glider swing.
These porch swing plans will allow the average woodworker to build a porch swing that is strong, attractive and functional. Be sure to consult with someone who knows construction prior to attaching this swing. Good luck with this great spring-time project.
