We have shared a Porch Glider Plan in the past, but a variation on the theme is always in order.  Everyone has a slightly different aesthetic and, even though the methods are essentially the same, seeing a design that suits your style is much more likely to get you to start building.

The following porch glider is a classic design that leaves much room for modification.  Some simple lengthening, or shortening, of pieces will allow you to adjust the width to suit your exact needs.  This free plan comes from The Handyman Club.  This is a good website for any woodworker.

    your free porch glider plan PDF only provides and prints even numbered pages. Odd numbered pages don’t print. seems like there is some info missing. Hw do we get the complete plan or must they be purchased.

      On the PDF, the page numbers appear to be missing because this is from a magazine. The missing pages appear to have been ads. You can confirm this by looking at how the text from one of the pages on the print, is connected directly to the next page in what prints out.

      Hope this helps.

    I have a glider similar to this that needs fixing. The bench leans to one side and the rear leg on that side rocks. I would like suggestions on how to fix it.

    I downloaded the Porch Glider Project Plan. I really like the project, but I find the drawing is too small to be useable. The curse of getting older. Is it possible to get a larger version of the drawing?

      I am sorry, bu the handyman club of america no longer appears to have the source image. I did a local search and also a search using the internet archive and an image matching search online. None of them came up with anything larger.

      Unfortunately, it looks like Handyman Club took the plan down.

      I did have an old Printout of the plan from their site and updated the link to that. It is a PDF and you can’t scale the images up, but it should help you get through the build. Just the material list and cut list should be a big help.

      Good luck.

        Just go to their site and do a search for “porch glider.” I got a 5 page print out of the article. Complete with full size graphic. You might have to do a search for the site. I don’t think it used the obvious name.
