To see a video of the cousin of this swing, the Musical Garden bench, copy and paste this address:
IT DOES THREE THINGS WELL. 1) Its is a bench, and a comfortable one at that. Roomy. 2) And it swings! with the provided chains. And lastly, 3) it swings, by that, of course, I mean it plays music in the key of "C" with the tropical sounds of a marimba. Western Red Cedar is renowned as a weather resistant species - and the fact that the seat slates are tuned into notes does not make them frail in anyway, in fact, they are excited to experience the weather. They always play notes, but when very wet, they temporary change pitch, only to return with the arrival of blue skies. The Cedar is finished with numerous coats of an oil-based outdoor finish. That and the stainless steel hardware makes this swing set to be around for a very long song.
MADE TO ORDER. I build these swings in Portland Oregon with the finest pieces of cedar. Depending on how busy my shop is, it will take a few weeks to complete. Three is a safe bet. If you are considering this as a gift, I would be glad to send you a glossy photograph to give to the special person. People tend to be very patient when they know its being built for them by hand.
EASILY SHIPPED UPS. I have shipped these designs all around the world with no trouble. I don't mark up the cost and pack things well in a double walled cardboard box. The Swing xylophone keyboard arrives fully intact, leaving only the legs and things to bolt together with simply lag bolts. No problem. Instructions included.
Feel free to call anytime with questions, or stop by the shop if you are in the neighborhood.
Thanks! I hope to hear from you ~
