Let’s learn all about Jack Post
I own one of these and the two-seat with table companion piece. Got them from Amazon for a lot more money and they were a steal even then.
Very nice quality stuff, but a beast to assemble. Make damn sure you have ALL the bolts and nuts and such you need before you start assembly.
Comfortable and strong and are standing up nicely to the light use they get on our screen porch. The cats love them though!
It states natural wood. Does it need to be stained/sealed? This will go on my front porch which only has an overhang.
Yes, reviews from other sites say it needs to be treated or it will turn gray. Teak oil about every year or so should do the trick. It’s not hard to do though.
Stuff like this makes me wish I had a yard.
I have one of these and the one person glider chair. I have had them now for about 5 years and use them on a porch. Leave them out year round. They do silver if you don’t put something on the wood. Mine have not yet split nor even have cracks so far (I am letting them silver as I am lazy). You also need to check the screws periodically and tighten them.
If you have too many teenagers sit on them (eg 4, the girls in the boys’ laps, sigh) they will bend the screws that attach the seat to the gliding mechanism. Bend them too much and when you glide back and forth the metal scraps the ground. You can buy replacement screws at Lowe’s.
They also make a porch swing which I do not own and want to.
These have high backs, nice angle to the seat/back and deeper seats so they are comfortable.
As someone else said they take a while to assemble.
Would this look OK without the trays put on? Thinking of doing that so it looks more like a traditional bench. But I wouldn’t like it if it looked like something was missing from the hardware.
Where would you put your beer?
If you happen to live in the Pacific Northwest stop by a Bi-Mart. We have them without the side trays for $90.
How much travel does the swing have? I’ve been wanting to get something like this and/or some rocking chairs for my front porch but I’m not sure it’s wide enough to swing on without bashing into my house.
Could those of you who have this give some tips on how you weather proofed this please? And do the metal parts stay rust-free? Our porch has an overhang only and so this would get wet.
Bi-Mart? What town in the NW?
I asked this same question on Amazon. Here is the link so you can see the answers thus far…
If I had to guess, it is about 10-14 inches of swing. It is very smooth and natural feeling. We did not do anything to protect ours as they are under cover (but not out of weather).
Also, no way should anyone leave off the end tables. They are just right for a paper plate and a drink or two.
This is the two-seater we got with the glider and it is even cooler and it is the one I use most. Tete a Tete
If you can find one, grab it!
Oh man. I hope Woot sells these again. I saw the email on my phone and completely forgot when I got home. I was going to be in for two.
Yeah. I wanted one too, but forgot until this morning… Wootoff?
