    The back isn't lopsided, the angle makes it seem off to me but it's not.

    John, that is one sharp looking swing buddy. Ya'll are going to have a bunch of good days swinging and relaxing in that. I love cedar, it is so pretty and the smell of it is so refreshing. Thanks for sharing the pictures with us. We are looking forward to seeing your future projects. What kind of wood are you going to build the table and benches out of?

    Nice looking swing, reminds me that I got a bunch of ERC logs that I've got to saw up, just been a little warm to want to do much.

    I wouldn't do ya like that.:wink: Unless i needed to take the pressure off of myself.:crazy:

    The table i'm making is also from cedar. I'll probably put it in plywood and cut it from there.Sorta like a picnic table with benches. We seldom use a kitchen table except to store fishin an huntin stuff.

    i call foul on the kitchen table. the only thing we use ours for is to loose bills under piles of junkmail mixed in among my better halfs sewing notions. i guess its ok i have our whole master bath stored (i mean decorated ) with fishing rods and reels.
