Tree Swing Family swing Wooden swing Wedding swing Kids Garden swing Garden swing Wedding gift Schaukel Balan oire
A beautiful tree swing made from sustainably sourced (fsc certified) solid oak. Makes a perfect gift for so many different occasions – weddings, anniversaries, christenings, birthdays and christmas. Perfect for hanging from your favourite tree or existing swing set – the kids (or the big kid in you) will love it :o. Comes with two 5m lengths of poly-hemp rope which is silky soft to the touch and will not warp, contract or rot when wet and will remain safe and strong for a lifetime. The rope is spliced on one end and can be passed through the holes in the swing and tied underneath – allowing you to remove the seat during winter if you so wish. The swing listed is 60cm x 20cm and plenty big enough for children and adults alike. However any size is possible – just let me know if you have specific size requirements. Finished with a coating of high quality teak oil. Care and maintenance notes will be enclosed with your swing. Please continue to read full description below to decide what kind of oak works best for you. There are two options for the type of oak you i use for the swings. This oak fresh off the tree with a high moisture content – fine for outdoors but will over time twist, crack and move as it dries out in situ creating a unique swing that will last you years. These swings must be stored outside. If you don’t want any splitting etc, or if you live in a very hot climate or want to use the swing indoors then the second option – kiln dried oak – may be a better option. The oak has been dried out in a kiln so that there will be very little movement or splitting in the wood. The process of kiln drying is time consuming and costly so this is reflected in the price. These swings can be personalised either on the edges or top of the swing. Just select the option that you want and enter the engravings you would like before check out. Please be sure to indicate which letters you want in capitals and which in lower case. For example isla’s swing or isla’s swing. Please also be sure to include any apostrophes etc. As standard i use the classic times new roman font but hundred of other fonts are possible – if there’s a particular font you want just let me know – special designs, shapes and images are possible. Just get in touch. The standard ropes are 5 metres long but if you need extra it’s no problem – just let me know and i will send you a quote. Remember – you will need approx 50cm to tie underneath the seat and enough to tie around the branch three times (this will vary depending on the size of the branch). Get in touch if you have any questions. Due to the nature of the materials used each oak swing will differ in terms of grain pattern, markings and with colours ranging from light creams to dark browns and even pinkish hues. This item is made of oak and polyhemp rope.
