The Ultimate Garden Glider Swing

This is a freestanding Glider Swing with butterflies for backs, beautiful sweeping curves and arches, and an incredibly inviting and relaxing atmosphere. The perfect place for a quiet backyard retreat.

The swing is built from clear Douglas fir and Marine plywood. All fasteners are stainless steel, and all bolts are counter bored and plugged. All pivot points are stainless rods in oilite bronze bushings which have been epoxied into their recesses. All pieces have a minimum of 2 primer coats and 3 top coats of marine grade paint.

This was an incredible project which made use of my boat building skills of layout, fairing, visualization, and attention to detail. All in all a great project.

Dimensions: Approximate dimensions are: Height - 11'- 8". Base is 8' x 10'. Seats are 4' wide and will accommodate 3 friendly adults per side. Most aspects and/or sizes/dimensions are customizable.
