When building the porch swing we recommend you to use quality materials (cedar, pine or redwood). If you want to learn how to build a simple swing for your porch, we strongly recommend you to take a look over the following instructions and to study the diagrams.
As you can notice in the free plans, we recommend you to make the frame from 2×3 lumber. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the slats before inserting the screws, to prevent the wood from splitting.
As you can notice in the plans, we recommend you to build both the supports and the armrests from 1×3 lumber. Make sure you use heavy-duty eye screws and lock all the components tightly, before hanging the swing to the porch. Check out the rest of the garden projects, as there are many garden plans that could suit your needs.
Align the components at both ends and drill pilot holes before inserting the screws, if you want to prevent the wood from splitting.
Afterwards, sand the wooden surfaces with medium-grit sandpaper, along the wood grain, and clean the residues with a dry cloth.
