This is a beautifully made porch swing that can handle weights up to 800 pounds. It’ll easily hold you and your significant other as well as the children if you all want to snuggle. The swing is handcrafted by the Amish. They’re known for the care and details they put into all their work. Since they often build their own structures, they understand how to build quality pieces that last a lifetime.
The swing is unfinished wood that we’ve listed as an advantage because you’ll be able to choose a color and design that fits your patio or porch décor. You can stain it, leave it natural, or paint it a fun, funky color to really stand out on the porch. The swing is incredibly comfortable because of the rolled edges of the seat and back.
The wood is a natural pine that has been pressure treated and dried in a kiln. Pressure-treated wood is resistant to rot and decay because of the way it’s been treated. It’ll also be resistant to insects like termites, which is vital if you want to leave the wood natural and avoid it being eaten by bugs. Pressure-treated pine is great for outdoor structures like decks, swings, sheds, and picnic tables.
The swing is sent to you partially assembled, but with unpainted, unfinished wood. It doesn’t need to be treated with a stain or protectant if you want to allow the wood grain to really shine.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will the chain wear on the hole over time?
The place where the chain attaches to the swing might become slightly worn depending on how hard the person is swinging, but that should not be a serious problem.
Is the swing comfortable without cushions?
The rolled seat means that it won’t cut into the back of a person’s legs when they’re sitting. The slats are routered, sanded, and rounded, so that there’s no sharp or rough edges when sitting. You don’t need to purchase cushions or pillows, but they would add a splash of color to your space.
Where is this swing made?
It’s made in Pennsylvania where there’s a large Amish community.
How much clearance does the swing need?
You’ll need a 4 to 6 inches around the swing to be able to use it comfortably without hitting the house. If you have kids, you might want to give yourself more room for them to swing without hitting the wall or railing.
This Amish Heavy-Duty 800 Lb Roll Back Porch Swing is handcrafted by Amish artisans and woodworkers. They used thick slats that were made with pressure-treated wood. Those slats were sanded down and rounded to ensure that you’ll next scrape your skin or clothing on the edges. With that kind of fine care, you’re able to leave the swing unfinished if you want to show off the natural beauty of the wood.
