Build a Gliding Composite Porch Swing

Nov 14th

Composite porch swing – Front porch sitting is a controllable pastime for many homeowners, but the traditional hanging swing is not always an option. A sturdy roof railing is required to hang the composite porch swing, but not all porches have ceilings or ceilings can be too weak to support a person’s weight. A sliding swing gives the same calming swinging movement, but the seat is mounted on a fixed frame, eliminating the need for the overhead rack. This type of swing may be used on any porch or patio, or in any garden.
