Green Thumb : Glide Into Some Relaxation


Glide into some well-deserved rest and relaxation on your patio, porch or lawn. There is little that helps relieve tension and stress after a long day like the gentle back-and-forth motion of a patio glider. Glider swings have long been a part of the American "relaxation" scene, and one sitting can take a person back to the days of big front porches and band concerts in the park.

Measuring 51 inches long and built to last, this version is made from Douglas fir and plywood. However, one can easily substitute redwood for the fir to give a more rustic look. A detailed step-by-step plan features more than a dozen photos, along with drawings, instructions and handy finishing tips. The gliding assembly is simple and will give years of trouble-free operation.
