Porch Swing

Nobody says you have to build your own porch swing. You could buy one, costing hundreds of dollars. But wait. Why not make it yourself and save some cash? Were you crafty enough, you could start from scratch... But let's also say you're willing to hit the halfway mark between scratch-built and store-bought. For this building project, we selected a 5-foot-long swing made of solid teak. No cutting is needed, so assembly takes only a few hours. And the effort is doubly repaid: in savings and in satisfaction.
