Intricate in design and grand in appearance, the innovative Cypress Swing Stand is crafted of 8-layer Cypress wood for superior strength and support. Arching wooden design is constructed of 7 sections of 3/4 inch solid cypress wood that form one single wooden beam for stability and strength. Cypress wood naturally maintains inherent oils that enable it to withstand the elements; turning the color of pewter with age. Swing stand exudes hints of European architecture with overhead arching design. Galvanized hardware also provides superior support for swing stand construction.
Cypress is well known for its resistance to decay and insects making it the ideal choice for outdoor applications. This is due to the unique characteristics of the wood itself. Cypress produces a naturally occurring preservative "cypressine" which gives it a head start against the harshest environmental conditions. It’s no wonder that so many colonial homes were constructed of this material. This versatile wood has a natural beauty, with a rich grain, texture and color that will complement any architectural style, from rustic to traditional to post modern. It is dimensionally stable and naturally resistant to splitting and warping. This wood will reflect your good taste and adds dramatically to the look of your home and garden.
