Rustic Porch Swings
Our porch swings are naturally gorgeous and designed and built to give you many years of pleasure and service. Each swing is a unique, one-of-a-kind functional work of art. Our standard seat widths are 4 and 5 feet, but we can build to any width you desire on a custom basis. The seat bottoms are ergonomically designed for hours of swinging pleasure without the need for a cushion. The swing’s arms are independently anchored with the swing’s chained being attached to independent supports on the swing’s bottom leaving the arms of the swing free for you to enjoy without a chain getting in the way.
Over all dimensions of each swing vary, however approximate widths on a four foot swing are 5 ½ feet and for a five foot swing are 6 ½ feet.
All of the hardware we use is exterior grade. All screws are primed exterior grade deck screws. All bolts, washers, and nuts are exterior grade and galvanized.
Final sanding of our swings is to 220 grit. The wood is then sealed with three coats of spar (marine grade) urethane, sanded between the second and third coats for maximum adhesion.
We choose to use Minwax Spar Urethane Clear Hi-Gloss product because of its durability and UV resistant properties resulting in years of service before having to apply another coat. This is a marine grade urethane made to stand up to the outdoor environment. This product also provides for easy cleaning of your swing and maximum water repellency.
Our standard swing styles are the Natural Arch, the Bluebonnet, the Yellow Rose of Texas, and the Texan. You can order your swing with artwork or without.
The underside of our swings is left raw in order that the natural, aromatic, and therapeutic aroma of the juniper (cedar) odor from the oil found within the wood can be enjoyed by our customers. This odor also naturally repels insects which is a definite plus when you are sitting outside enjoy nature. Over time the oil will wick away from the surface, but a gentle sanding will once again bring the oil back to the surface and renew the wonderful odor.
