Family - Oak Rope Swing
One of my best sellers, solid kiln dried oak traditional tree swing for adults or kids with personalised engraving, handmade wooden seat with hand spliced rope and fixings.
Made to last a lifetime of fun. can be fitted to tree branch, pergola and also great as a replacement for the garden swing frame. Make it unique with personal engraving. Add a house name, kids names, anniversary date, wedding, birth date or your favourite quote making it the perfect addition to your garden or gift for any occasion.
Standard 60cm wide x 20cm deep x 3.5cm thickness
Extra Deep 60cm wide x 25cm deep x 3.5cm thickness
Large seat suitable for all ages above 3 years with 52cm between the ropes for bottoms.
Constructed from one single length of premium kiln dried oak
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 eg:
1 side = THE OLD SCHOOL HOUSE
2 side = SHOOT TO THE MOON
1 side = (heart image) Chloe & Ben (star image)
The standard font size I use (as pictured above) 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 18mm thick rope. I use premium quality polyhemp soft touch rope which is soft on the hands and very hard wearing, its also rot resistant so can be left out all year round. The swing comes with the rope looped through the seat and hand spliced together giving a lovely characterful traditional look. Need more rope, no problem just get in touch for a quote.
To measure the rope length needed:
1. measure from floor to the hanging area/bough
2. minus the amount that the seat height will be from the floor, I generally recommend approx. 65cm seat height from floor for family use or so the tallest user can tippy toe while seated.
3.now allow for a additional length to go around the area 2 times and have approx. 50cm extra for fixing the rope clamps. to calculate a branch circumference simply multiply its diameter(thickness) by 3.14..
Its always better to have too much than too little.
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.
