Hand carved in the UK from Green oak, this beautiful wood garden swing will look amazing in anybody's garden. The green oak is chosen for it's longevity & ease of maintenance and will age beautifully if left outside, naturally silvering over time & may even cup or twist slightly, which will add to its unique character. The standard or 'uncarved' swing has a natural plain finish but we also offer a version with the phrase 'Just a Bit of Fun' carved into the facia. Available in 3 kits depending on the diameter of your bough.
This swing is superbly engineered and is very straight-forward to install. All you need to do is chose a bough that is strong enough & level & between 8 feet or 2.5 metres & 15 feet or 5 metres from the ground, then loop the spliced hempex rope around it. The seat itself is supplied with 2 x 5 metre lengths of Hempex rope which is spliced & securely knotted-off under either side of the seat. You then simply thread the ends of each of these 5 metre lengths through the open loop hanging down from each of your bough loops & double it back on itself. Next, you level-up your seat & secure the lengths by tightening the heavy duty metal clamps (2 for each rope) & cut-off any excess rope and heat seal the rope ends with a lighter to seal them & to stop them from fraying.
