When Oak Swings manufactures a porch swing, they go to great lengths to select the very best quality raw materials, which are read oak hardwood. This durable and great looking wood is then planned, cut and shaped to form a porch swing and for added durability, the porch swing is then coated with a linseed oil finish, which protects the porch swing against mildew and the linseed coating allow the porch swing to be resistant to the harsh UV rays of the sun. Unlike mass-produced porch swings, Oak Swings' handcrafted porch swings have no nails, staples or brads which pull loose and the edges of the porch swing are rounded and smoothed, which not only adds to the appeal of the porch swing, but adds to the comfort of the swing.
Doug Mrock continued with the business where his father left off, and in 1997, the Oak Swings' website, www.oakswings.com, was launched and buyers from every part of the country were able to purchase the value for money, handcrafted solid oak porch swing. Other than our range of porch swings, Oak Swings also manufactures rockers and oak chairs and these products are often purchased with the porch swing. Each porch swing has been stamped with a swing serial number and date, and this affords the buyer of the porch swing the reassurance that they are purchasing a genuine, handcrafted porch swing. Unlike the mass-produced swings, extra care and time are taken during the manufacture of each swing, from selecting the wood to the cutting and sanding of the wood and finally to applying the linseed oil coating.
