  • Need help locating a lawn swing magazine plan.

    Hello All,

    I need a little help finding a plan or a copy of it, that appeared (I believe?) in a Canadian Woodworking Magazine issue prior to the year 2000. I built the lawn swing below before 2000 and I canít find the plan for it in my collection of woodworking magazines.

    The lawn swing below was scrapped a few years ago with the intention of building another but I canít find the magazine issue. All I need is a copy of the magazine or a photo of the article in question.
    Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.
    Gord

      I believe that it is on the cover............but I'm older now and tend to forget.

        Aren't we all. I checked the ones I have and no dice. I have a couple of your articles but not that one.

          Many thanks for looking Wally.
          I'll have a go at my pile again but I figure someone here must have seen the article or built the swing..............I can always hope.
          Building it from memory isn't such a good idea............for me anyway.

            Gord,

            What about this one from Canadian Workshop 1992:

            There's some foot detail you can't see in the picture and the seat is different but otherwise it's close enough to get the main dimensions and fudge the rest. I've scanned it to PDF if you want to PM me an email to send it to.

                Thanks Kevin for sending me a copy of your lawn swing, it'll get me going in the right direction.

                I'm still looking for the plans to the original lawn swing I posted and if anyone can help me out, I'd much appreciate it.

                The reason I'm looking for those plans in particular is, even though the seat and back were not contoured, the angle between the seat and back was perfectly suited to all that sat in it. I could spend some time experimenting with that angle but I figured that if someone had the plans laying around that would save me a ton of time and aggravation.

                  Or you could build this. Lee Valley sells Veritas outdoor plans. Years ago I built the 2 seat Adirondack rocking porch seat and it's very comfortable to sit in. They now sell a design for hanging on chains.
