This step by step diy woodworking project is about glider swing stand plans. Create a beautiful wooden glider swing for your patio, to enjoy your afternoon in open space. You can build this stand in just one day with common household tools and under 50 $ worth of raw materials (if you go with cedar, pine is a lot cheaper). Make sure you take a look over the rest of plans to see alternatives and more projects for your garden.

Work with attention and don’t forget that a good planning will save you from many issues and it will keep the costs withing the total budget. Invest in high quality materials, such as pine, redwood or cedar. Drill pocket holes before inserting the galvanized screws, to prevent the wood from splitting. Add waterproof glue to the joints, in order to enhance the rigidity of the structure.

Building the side frames

Build the vertical supports from 2×4 lumber. Drill pilot holes through the top and bottom supports and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the vertical components. Align the edges with attention. Alternatively, you can drill pocket holes at both ends of the vertical components and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the supports.
