What better way to kick up your feet and relax than with a porch swing? Learn how to build a freestanding porch swing with DIYer Jenny Palo of Palo_woodcraft.

This week’s blog post is written by our college interns in the Engineering Department. They were tasked with creating a DIY project that would be sturdy and durable, so they decided to create a DIY porch swing. Thank you to Paul Cabasag, Alex Wightman, Ian Kennedy, Sienna Palos, Daniel Noh and Toan Nguyen for this week’s post.
