A beautiful handcrafted solid oak swing frame of distinction
If you want a swing in your garden and don’t have the right tree – we have created the finest solid oak swing frame on the market. This our all new substantial and heavy duty premium solid oak swing frame. A feature all of its own in your garden.
The frame is completely made to order in our Surrey Hills workshop by our skilled craftsmen. The design of our custom swing frame is like nothing else on the market, the shape and contours of the crossbar is stunning to look at but also ensure strength and stability throughout the frame. Each section of the swing frame is all cut and finished by hand with great care and attention to detail. The whole thing fits together like a giant jigsaw using decorative stainless steel mushroom head fittings that complete the finished look. It is a swing frame design that makes other swing frames look bland and basic.
Our philosophy has always been – if we make something it wants to be better than anything else on the market. Most traditional swing frames have a straight hanging cross bar and then the legs are cut to fit against this making up the A-Frame. We have come at this in a completely different way. Instead of cutting the legs to fit the crossbar, we made the crossbar A shape to excepts the legs which are left solid and not reduce at any point along the length meaning extra strength and stability. The finished result is quite exquisite.
Our garden swing frames are made from hand-selected ‘Air Dried’ English Oak. We would like to stress, these are made from Air-Dried Oak and not Green Oak. The reason why this is so important is that green oak is cut straight from the tree soon after it is felled and has not been dried in any way. This will over time dry out even in outdoor conditions and will move, split and crack as it dries and becomes accustomed to its surroundings. ‘Air Dried’ oak is as it states. It has been left to dry out over a long period of time – for several years and has acclimatised and settled into its surroundings. This means any movement or splitting has already occurred and can be removed leaving a flawless finish. This also means you can pretty much rely on the fact, as much as you can with a natural product like wood, that your beautiful swing frame will not change significantly once you have placed it in your garden. Your oak frame is already perfectly accustomed to outdoor conditions.
If you are order a swing to go with our swing frame we will come with all the swing fittings to hang and adjust your swing. The frame comes with two eyes fittings as part of the swing frame assembly. The swing is then attached to the frame fittings by Carabiners, which means you can remove the swing for storage or maintenance during the winter months. We also include our adjustable swing screws which allow the swing seat height to be raised and lowered when attached to the frame.
All swings come with UK made Synthetic Hemp rope. A strong marine quality rope that is mellow in colour, soft to touch, and being synthetic it won’t swell, shrink or rot, unlike natural rope.
Choose either our Child Swing seat, Adult Swing seat, our Large Adult Swing seat or our Double Swing to go with your frame. Each oak swing can be personalised with your own engraved lettering on the front and back of the swing seat.
Our wooden garden swing frames can either be ordered untreated or finished in Superior Danish Oil. If you choose untreated the timber will soon weather to a pale silver given time. Danish Oil will not only treat the timber but also bring out the timbers natural colour. This has a UV filter to protract the timber but it does require regular upkeep. 2 – 4 times a year to keep it looking its best.
Our swing frames do not come with engraving as standard but if you want some engraved lettering or carved motifs this can be done by request. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
