Relax in style with this comfortable and classic addition to any outdoor living space. The glider featured on the cover of this plan was built using poplar, a wood which is prone to rot outdoors. To prevent wood rot, I chose to protect the glider with two coats of primer and two coats of exterior paint. For a clear wood look, use a rot-resistant wood such as; cedar, cypress, or another exterior wood. Apply a clear UV (ultraviolet) resistant finish. Select exterior screws and glue to guarantee long-lasting joints. Use the patterns to help you make the shaped parts.

This pattern is terrible. The cut list is wrong, directions are not detailed enough, you have to figure out everything for yourself after you recut pieces that had wrong measurements in the cut list. Would not recommend this pattern to anyone.
Don’t trust the cut list.
Well, like the plans say the cuts on the cut list are larger than what need for your template to be placed on and then trim away. After making several cuts and making templates guess what? The template is an inch longer and a half inch wider than the specs for the seat rails and the arms! All wood cut is now in a scrap pile and with the current price of lumber, quite a loss. This was also the paper plan I purchased from my local Woodcraft store so no printing errors on my side. Good idea, Bad plans.
Lot of enjoyable woodworking, gliding part of chair too short travel.
