SWINGS

Art Deco Modern Times Country Comfort Boca


MODERN TIMES

Black Walnut & Cherry Hardwood

 

Mission Statement: To Build the Best Swings on the Planet.

"Modern Times" was designed for the contemporary home. Whether suspended from the Lanai or adorning your backyard from the Zen like sanctuary of a Redwood Garden Arbor you will enjoy many hours of quality time relaxing with your love ones, lazily chatting the time away.

This beautiful Swing employs mortise and tenon joinery held together with square pegs. This is a joinery technique used for hundreds of years to hold wood  together before the advent of nails. Today, many manufactures of high end furniture use faux square peg joinery strictly for aesthetics. As you see in the images below, mine are real and functional. They look good too!

"Modern Times" Swing will be a welcome addition to your Family creating wonderful memories from one generation to the next. Cherish it, Care for it, and make your Custom Hand-made Porch Swing a Family Heirloom.

 

"The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time."  James Taylor

 

Mortise & Tenon Joinery

Top board has the Tenon. Bottom board the mortise. I make two tenons and mortises in each joint for better expansion and contraction management.

Horizontal boards or rails with the tenons are the top and bottom boards of the Swing's back. Vertical boards with the mortise are the stiles or sides. The Cherry wood panel is in the middle of frame.
