Garden Swing Seat: Inspired by Children 0
A beautiful detailed, classical two-child swing-seat designed from Teak wood so it may pass down through the generations. The seat is hand engraved with scroll work reading: ‘Higher Daddy Higher' on one leading edge, and ‘Higher Mummy Higher’ on the other.
This Swing Seat was inspired by its owners & its setting.
It now hangs from a fantastic branch coming off perpendicular to the trunk at approximately 30 foot from the ground, with the ground beneath gradually sloping away – a most idyllic setting for a seriously performing swing.
The swing was designed for two children to enjoy using in all safety. The seat has no less than 200 (6mm diameter) Teak dowels set into the seat top, each carefully rounded over and left proud to provide grip for the little ones’ bums.
It was professionally finished with numerous coats of yacht varnish, so that even though it has been outside from the day it was hung, seven years later it still looks as great as the day the varnish dried!
This design came to inspire a more price-sensitive range of Solid Oak Swing Seats sold in our SHOP, which perform equally well and last just as long.
The Stroud News reviews The Fine Wooden Article Co. 1
Thank you to The Stroud News for this feature!
– A SHIPWRIGHT who specialises in classic yacht restoration has started up a business making personalised wooden items such as benches, swing seats and wine racks.
The Fine Wooden Article Company, which is based in Saul, offers a range of products and services making items out of timber and other hard woods.
The company also makes bespoke upcycled products made from used wood they find from places like Sharpness docks.
They even use Jack Daniel’s whiskey barrels to fashion their handicraft.
Up-cycling involves converting waste material into new products of better quality or for better environmental value.
Founder Peter Meredith, who got into sailing as a teenager and later spent about 15 years as a captain of various wooden sailing ships, said: “After 12 months of trading all aspects of the business are delivering.” –
