It’s easy to imagine wiling away a summer afternoon or an early evening on your own porch swing. With a glass of wine, you’ll enjoy chatting with passing neighbors or watching your children as they play on the lawn. Building a porch swing often can be a difficult project that requires fine woodworking skills—but not with this project. Here, the focus is on simplicity, with a spare design that takes you from the home center to completion in only a few hours. This compact porch swing requires only a minimal quantity of lumber, allowing you to purchase higher-grade maple or oak lumber. At the same time, this porch swing is generous enough in size—and strong enough—that two people can sit side-by-side.
