DIY Project – Arbor Swing


From Charles l Scozzari,

Hello I am making the arbor with porch swing plan that you have. on the porch swing where do I attach the chain to the swing? is there a kit i am supposed to buy? and how much Chain is required for this. btw I am sending you a picture of the arbor your plans were great, I changed the 2 x 6 flooring and hand rests to decking wood. it was cheaper and i thought it would make the project look less bulky.

Here is a pic I rounded the hand rails trying to miter them just seemed to fray the end of the decking. the 4 and a 1/2 inch screws on top i replaced with 4 1/2 inch lags. anyway thanks again for the plans. i also included another project i completed using your plans just figured you might like to see that too. (2 seat bench)
