It pays to be choosy about your log swing, and the Cedar Creek Rustic Furniture 5 ft. Cedar Log Swing and Stand can handle the scrutiny. Cedar Creek has been crafting log furnishings in the USA for over 35 years; that’s long enough to have learned a thing or two. This swing’s stand is built with 4 in. diameter logs with no taper. Braces are thicker and more secure than those you’ll find on cheaper versions of this classic design. Most importantly, the swing bucket attaches with a massive custom U-bolt. Thick, durable hardware goes all the way through the top log but is not countersunk. Inferior swings may have countersunk bolts on the top rail, which can allow water to pool and increase the risk of rot. This swing’s bolts are zinc-plated and are larger and longer than those rivals use. The northern white cedar logs used to create this swing are hand peeled and sanded to perfection. The result is simply smooth to the touch. White cedar is infused with natural oils that allow the wood to resist rot and pests; you can expect around 20 years of use! The seat is contoured for comfort, and backrest slats’ tops are rounded to enhance the aesthetics and reduce the possibility of snagging. Dimensions: 84L x 60W x 67H in. (Overall) 66L x 28W x 47H in. (Swing) (5 ft.) More About Northern White Cedar Native to the northern US and Canada, northern white cedar does not require finishing or varnish to last 25 years or more. It will naturally weather to a sought-after silvery gray hue while remaining soft, smooth, and practically splinter-free. Over time, as moisture levels in the air change, it is normal for cedar logs to “check,” a natural process that adds character and does not compromise the structural integrity of your furnishings. The checking process will stop once the wood has dried completely and will never extend past the core.
