Jean's Ultimate Swing Sets
Every once in a while, we get a special call to design and build a work of art. We took nearly half a year to design and build this gorgeous swing. We think the name says everything about it: Jean's Ultimate Swing Set. Hope you agree.
Jean's Ultimate Swing Set is a gorgeous unit that was built to order. A work of art that took almost half a year to design and is here to stay forever.
- Design: An ultimate swing set that includes two swing seats next to the main glider that can be used by children of all ages.
- Quality: Solid construction with superior craftsmanship with Redwood that outlasts teak or cedar.
- Customize: Click the More Options button to choose seat style, roof options, beverage armrest, kids platform side table, engraving and sealant colors.
- Assembly: Ships in a large crate. Can be placed directly on bare ground if you like. It is built to last and to hold up fine in any weather for decades
- Our Story: We started with an extra tall swing for maximum swinging enjoyment (12 ft). Then we added a Face to Face Glider for 4 adults unlike any we have built before. The extra long hangers make the foot powered gliding long and graceful. We added a steel beam and other steel reinforcements in case the swing ever fell into hands of sugared up adolescents testing its capabilities for hours on end. For the faint of heart, we added a roof for shade and rain protection.

Seel Beam Reincorcement
Available for additional structural reinforcement for Rory's Giant 3-Person Swing is a 1/4" thick steel beam. It sits atop the entire length of the 6 x 6 main timber and wraps around both the front and rear for additional long-term structural strength. The steel beam is not needed for normal long-term use; it was developed for commercial installations, but has been ordered occasionally for private family applications where on-going rambunctious behavior is anticipated. The steel beam is primered and painted black (oil based paint) and comes with all the stainless steel bolts needed to firmly secure it to the main beam.
The hanging hardware is 4"L x 2 1/4"W x 3 1/4"H (see drawings below)
Some customers ask us about not having to touch the chain with their hands. If you don't want to touch the chain, the easiest solution is to order the seat without chain and instead buy high quality manila rope from your local hardware store or online. If you like the idea of using chain, you can slide a plastic sleeve over the chain (at least the bottom 2 feet or so which will be touched regularly). Any hardware store has plastic tubing that can be cut to slide the chain into. If you have a large diameter old garden hose, which will do the trick also.
Rory's Swing Seat Dimensions
3" thick x 2' 2" long x 5 3/4" wide. The seat has a 30" wide seating capacity. Capacity is 400 lbs. However, ultimate weight bearing capacity will depend on what you use to attach the seat (e.g., rope, chain, etc.) and what you attach it to (e.g., a tree or beam).
Toddler/Small Kid's Swing Seat Dimensions
The Toddler/Small Kid's Swing Seat is recommended for ages 6 months to 3 years old. It is 15 1/2"W x 13"D x 8 1/2"H to top of front safe
Our swings are so massive that they do not need to be secured to the ground. The only thing we recommend is that you add a few inches of gravel underneath each of the four post corners so that the posts won't settle into the ground.
SWING SEAT STYLE
If you have a child, you can upgrade to a Toddler/Small Kid's Swing Seat for your Rory's Swing Set. Under Advanced Options, the upgrade option is $50 for one seat or $75 for two. The Toddler/Small Kid's Swing Seat is sized for ages 6 months to 5 years old. It is 15 1/2"W x 13"D x 8 1/2"H to top of front safety bar and 9 3/4"H to top of backrest. The safety straps are included.

All our furniture ships finely sanded to 220 grit for a smooth to the touch finish.
The most popular finish is our Transparent Premium Sealant. This sealant leaves your furniture looking natural and helps keep the beautiful wood surface colors from fading for several years. We use Sikkens brand finishes because they are the best finishes on the market. For more information about our finishes and how to keep your furniture looking great year after year, please go to: https://www.foreverredwood.com/redwood-furniture/care-finish/
Unfinished (fine sanding only):
If you are applying your own stain or want the surface color to fade to a "weathered look" in a few months. We do not recommend you leave your furniture unfinished outdoors for any extended period regardless of wood quality. Outdoor weather changes constantly and it is best to at least seal the wood to protect it from consistently absorbing and losing moisture.

Care: Your Forever Redwood Furniture will last for decades in year-round weather without maintenance.
Depending on the wood grade you choose, even with harsh year-round outdoor conditions, you can expect your furniture to last from ten to forty years without maintenance of any kind.
Being outside year round is rough on any woods finish. The surface absorbs UV rays, pollution, constant variations in moisture and temperature and it also oxidizes. This is why most wood just doesnt hold up and the surface color slowly changes towards a silver patina over the years. But, with Forever Redwood, you dont have to worry. The silver patina is surface deep only (less than 1/64") and is not indicative of decay. Your set will last decades and is not compromised in any way by the surface color change. For example, we keep our display items as is without refinishing to show off this natural aging (we like the patina!).
Although Forever Redwood is maintenance-free, we recommended you take a few minutes as needed to clean by either hosing down and/or brushing/dusting away accumulated debris (no soap or chemicals needed). If youd like to keep your set looking its best for decades, please go to: Care and Finish
