would probably trim the eye bolt ends but that is minor
might even turn a small finial to cover the ey bolt ends
well it still uses chains to hang the whole thing but the ropes are a nice

not a bad idea
saves money too because the eye bolts and nuts add to the cost
but it might be hard to get the knots just right so the swing is level
although the leveling could be done at the top where it attaches to the
chains going into the porch
Put deadeyes in and then you can adjust to your hearts
content. Plus it would look very nautical.
(being serious for a moment, I think if you ran the rope
thru a hole you might have problems with chafing).

Lack of punctuation makes it hard to tell exactly with it is you're
trying to say ... but I do know one thing for damned sure:
Ain't no way in hell you've ever dallied a rope around a saddle horn
with a 900lb steer on the other end ...
When we were children, if we didn't use punctuation the teacher would
hand back our assignment and we'd have to redo it and turn it in again.
I think we should take that approach with this guy. No one should
answer any of his questions or reply to anything he says until he
decided to punctuate his $h!t. :-)

What kind of rope were you using? It makes a difference. Nylon has
lots of stretch, dacron, polypropylene and natural fibers not so much.
Then there's Kevlar and Spectra that are close to steel in stretch or
lack of same.
Getting the knot positioned is in part a matter of using the right knot.
