Oak Swing seat - traditional shape
A beautiful handmade oak swing, commissioned by ropelocker from a local carpenter. Each is made from a single piece of English oak, and supplied with hardy hemp rope at a length of your choice.
Suitable for adults and children. The only restriction will be the strength of the branch you attach it to!
The seat measures 36.5cm long by 19.5cm wide by 3cm deep, and has been coated in protective polyurethane to protect it from the elements. The hardy hemp rope is 20mm diameter and is made of a weather-resistant, synthetic fibre but still has a soft feel and natural appearance.
You can choose the length of rope you require above. The double-overhand knot on the bottom of the swing allows you to adjust the height of the swing seat once in place.
Fitting the swing
The rope has a loop at the end (soft eye) which is big enough to pass the swing seat through, so it can be attached to a tree branch in the traditional way. Alternatively, if you wish to attach the swing to a wooden frame, we can supply a metal bracket (see below). This swing can also be used with a zip-wire if you have the existing wire and fitments in place.
