This porch swing was made from a solid slab of oak cut in half and smoothed on one side. I chose to keep the rough saw cut finish on the outside of the board because it was cut with a huge circular saw and I thought the round cuts looked cool. the arm rests are made from oak with a black walnut stripe in the middle. The support arms are made from oak and hand shaped. This is one heavy bench and will stand the test of time. The autograph is from a charcoal rubbing taken from the burial site of Jimi Hendrix (the customer is a huge fan). can be made without signature or with any other signature in its place.
