Chadwick outdoor swing bench from Oxford Garden. Hangs with four 11 feet rope lengths made of 3/8 inch nylon rope. Traditional design with gently arched back and deep seating. Handcrafted of shorea hard wood using mortise and tenon joinery, this swingwill last for years to come. Shorea wood is tropical hardwood comparable to teak which is very resistant to water, sun and outdoor elements.
Sales person says: Shorea wood has a high oil content which makes it very resistant to water and rotting. It is highly resistant to bug infestation, rain, wind, sun and snow. If left untreated it weathers naturally to a beautiful silver gray over period of 1 year. Natural wood color can be maintained longer with seasonal application of teak oil and protectors.
