Porch Swing

As a holiday gift, a marketable project, or an addition to your own porch, this swing can be built with only a day's worth of labor for as little as fifty dollars in materials. For durability and an antique look, oak was chosen, but whatever wood is selected the porch swing will generate a lifetime of comfort and interest, reminiscent of days that need not remain bygone.

The project is begun by cutting to size parts A, B. and C, which comprise the seat frame. Care should be taken in sawing out the three pieces labeled C, since they will determine the shape or contour of the seat. Butt rails A and B to rails C and join them with pairs of #8 fiat-headed screws. Counterbore %" holes, plug them, and sand flush. Be sure to leave 3" on cither side of A to allow for the arm stumps.

The seat slats can be nailed to the frame using I" wire brads hammered into predrilled holes
