Rustic - Oak Rope Swing
Great garden tree swing for kids or adults, Can be fitted to tree branch, pergola and also great as a replacement for the garden swing frame. Lovely rustic wooden seat with thick polyhemp rope.
Kiln dried oak with a rustic sawn textured surface, lightly sanded then finished in refined rustic tint external oil.
50cm long x 16cm wide x 2.7cm thickness, suitable all ages above 3years
Optional personalisation on one or both sides, in capital or lower case and even a little pic (as shown in images) I have a star, heart 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 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 knot under the seat giving a lovely characterful traditional look. Need more than 10m of rope? no problem just get in touch.
To measure the rope length needed simply measure to the 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.
Tip: 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 (2 each side), 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 be info and link to video on how to tie the 'swing hitch knot' which is very good also.
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
