    I have bought a beautiful oak child’s swing with my daughters name engraved on one side and ‘swinging on a star’ on the other. It arrived in time for her 9th birthday as promised, very well packaged. It is simply stunning, thick solid oak beautifully finished, the rope is nice and thick. I know that she will love it and it will last for many years. Thank you so much. I will be recommending the swing and your company.

    Just to say, the swing arrived safely, left in a safe place as we were out which was great so no hassle with trying to collect or rearrange delivery or anything.
    It was beautifully wrapped and looks sensational. His birthday isn’t until the 21st June so a little wait for him to try it out but I know he will be delighted as he will have one to match his sisters!
    thanks again,
    Michelle and family

    Ben Hello

    I am currently working away from home just now though the swing arrived today at my house. I told my wife to open it as it was a surprise and she is over the moon with it. She has assured me the quality is top notch..

    I’d like to thank you and your team for helping me to making a lovely lady very happy indeed.

    Thanks again and regards

    Dear Ben & Davina

    I wanted to say a heart-felt thank you for the beautiful swing that you made for our little boy. It’s beautiful.
    The wood, the carvings, the finished piece – stunning!

    Please pass on my thanks to the carpenter who made this little swing, it really is special!

    Kind regards,

    Thank you! We haven’t seen our two little grandsons since lockdown began. Now there is talk of social circles possibly being able to open up, we would love to have the swing to surprise them on their first visit back to us! I am very much looking forward to getting it up in our cherry tree!

    best wishes

    Hi Ben

    Just wanted to say how delighted we are with the swing, as are our two little grandsons. It was a lovely surprise for them when they came round for a play in the garden……so wonderful after such a long time!

    Thank you!

Finish: Untreated, Superior Danish Oil or Diamond Coating

Aftercare: Product maintenance is very important. If you have chosen your product to be left untreated, your product will fade to a pale silver in time. We recommend a pressure wash or a sand once a year to remove any moss or unwanted mess on the timber and then treat with an exterior oil to slow down decay.

Danish Oil – If you have chosen Danish oil we recommend you continue to treat your product with Danish oil or similar timber treatment oil to protect the timber and stop it drying out. This will also help to prevent staining, discolouration, cracking and warping.

Dimond Coating – If you have chosen Dimond Coating, top up kits can be purchased on our website or over the phone. We would recommend you treat your product once a year minimum. Twice a year if you want to maintain full protection.

About Timber: Natural timber will always want to move. It’s going to expand and shrink as the temperature and humidity changes in your home and outside, rest assured it won’t change drastically. Small hairline splits may occur as your product ages, this is completely normal and is regarded as part of the timbers natural beauty. As the seasons change you may see some movement in your product, again this is completely normal.

Air-dried oak: Your product has been made using Air-dried timber. This is has been seasoned for outdoor conditions. Do not keep exterior products indoors.

If you need any help or advise on how to maintain your product please contact us or consult your care guide.

Product Description: Personalised Wooden Small Swing

Beautiful personalised wooden swings for the garden. As featured in…

Personalised Wooden Garden Swings, Made With Care.

These handmade small wooden swings are constructed right here in our Surrey Hills workshop, to order, by hand.

Our UK Made Rope:

All of these personalised small swings come with 5 metre drop of synthetic hemp rope on each side. This is a strong marine quality rope that is mellow in colour, soft to touch and is synthetic. That means it won’t swell, shrink or rot like a natural rope. Longer lengths of rope are available if required, so let us know if you need more.

These small garden swings come ready to hang and can be tied directly from a tree branch. Alternatively, we can supply marine quality fittings that are ideal for adjustment without having to climb the tree. They can also be hung from porches and other structures with strong frames.

Knot Options:

Standard Knot – Our swings come with two-knot options. Standard knot – means the swing seat has a single hole in each end of the oak swing seat, then the rope is then fed through and tied off with a Stopper Knot underneath.

Spliced Knot – The alternative is a Spliced knot. Like our larger adult swing, the wooden swing seat has 4 holes – two at each end. The rope then goes through one under the swing seat and out the other and then the two strands are woven together above the swing. The Spliced knot will make the swing seat more stable.


As with everything we do here at Make Me Something Special, we have spent the time researching and sourcing the perfect materials available. Each oak swing is handmade from one piece of Air Dried Superior Grade English Oak. This Timber is perfectly seasoned and adjusted for outdoor conditions. You can choose to leave your swing untreated, finished in Superior Danish Oil or our low maintenance Diamond Coating finish. If you choose untreated your product will weather to a pale silver more quickly. Danish Oil will not only treat the timber but also bring out the timbers natural colour. This has a UV filter to protect the timber but it does require regular upkeep. 2 – 4 times a year to keep it looking its best. Diamond Coating is more glossy but a lot more harder wearing and only requires a top up once a year, however this depend on the weather and where the product is placed. We would recommend twice a year if you want full protection. Top up kits can be ordered over the phone or on our website – see here. 

Personalise your Oak Swing:

These small wooden swings are available blank, with standard engraving or can be personalised with your own unique message, using up to 25 characters per side. You can also add carved hearts, stars and other engraved motifs. Take a look at the options available to you – Engraving options.

We can also engrave a secret or personal message for you on the underside of your swing, making your tree swing that little bit extra special. Carved names, dates, a classic children’s nursery rhyme or story book quote, something witty, or just something secret you don’t want anyone else to see – but you know it’s there.

Standard engraving:



3.5cm x 17.5cm x 45cm  (1.5” x 7” x 18”)

Estimated Delivery Time:

swings will be delivered within 7-10 working days. Please be aware this can change daily. If you require an item to be made by a specific date please contact us.
