Use a free porch swing plan to build your family a place to sit and gather during the warm months and cuddle under a blanket when the evenings get chilly. This is a project you can feel good about making and it will be used for many generations to come.

Building a porch swing is a fairly simple woodworking project perfect for the beginner or intermediate builder and will be a unique addition to your patio furniture. All the porch swing plans have detailed instructions and blueprints to help you succeed.

This will only take you a day or two to build and you can expect to spend around $150.

Don't limit yourself if you don't have a large enough front porch for a swing. Think about your back porch, deck, or even a tree in your yard. You can even suspend one from an arbor or swing set frame. A porch swing would make anywhere in your yard so much more enjoyable.
