I'm not one that usually follows plans in a magazine, but this one caught my wifes' eye, so we had to have it. So I made it
Interesting to note, the glider hardware that I bought from Rockler was identical to the hardware on a neighbors glider. That glider was 50 years old. I replaced the seat slats for them, and they bought new stainless steel hardware. A few drops of oil was all they needed, but when I told my neighbors that they could have new ones for 20 bucks or so, they chose to replace them.
My glider took so long, due to the sanding and finishing. The cedar can suck up paint, even after two coats of primer.
