Children's - Oak Rope Swing
Great little children's solid kiln dried oak tree rope swing with a timeless traditional design, optional personalised engraving and fixing clamps.
Handmade to last a lifetime. Great gift or addition your own garden and guaranteed to make lasting memories for all the family. can be fitted to tree branch, pergola and also great as a replacement for the garden swing frame. I also have many customers who use them indoors! Make it unique with personal engraving. Add a house name, kids names, anniversary date, wedding, birth date or your favourite quote. Make it as completely unique as you like.
45cm wide x 14cm deep x 3.5cm thickness. Suitable for all ages 3 years up to teenagers
Optional personalisation on one or both sides, in capital or lower case and even a little pic, I have a star, heart, oak leaf and flower as my standard images. Engraved by laser at approx. 2mm depth.
Simply write the text as it should appear on the swing, for example:
1 side = PEAR TREE COTTAGE
2 side = TO THE MOON & BACK
1 side = (heart image) Chloe & Ben (star image)
The standard font size I use (shown in pics) enables 20 capitals or 26 lower case letters to fit, this includes any spaces or images. You are able to have more letters but note the text will be reduced in size the more you have.
From 3 metres up to 10 metres each side of 14mm thick rope. I use premium quality polyhemp soft touch rope which is soft on the hands and very hard wearing, it can be left out year round in all weathers as it is rot resistant. The swing comes with the rope through the seat and hand spliced giving a lovely characterful traditional look.
Need more than 10m, no problem just ask for a quote.
To measure the rope length needed simply measure to the hanging area/bough from where the seat top will be then allow for a additional length to go around the area 2 times and have approx. 50cm extra for fixing the rope clamps. Any excess rope after fitting can be cut and sealed by burning with a match.
Its always better to have too much than too little.
Tip for tree hanging: to calculate the branch circumference simply multiply its diameter(thickness) by 3.14.. if you have any questions or you would like me to calculate the length needed just get in touch.
Supplied with 4 steel rope clamps, simply wrap the rope around the branch or frame 2 times add the clamps then tighten up the nuts with a spanner.. Done! If you would prefer to fit the swing with a knot that's no problem as in the box will also be info and link to video on how to tie the 'swing hitch knot'.
The oak seat is finished in an external UV protecting refined oil which penetrates deep into the oak and provides long term protection while allowing the oak to age gracefully and develop a natural patina as it weathers over time. More maintenance info supplied in the box.
Just get in touch if you need something custom as I am more than happy to get the right solution for your needs
