Wood Studio creates their version of this swing based on a design that was popular during the mid to late 1800's in and around Beersheba Springs, Tennessee. Designed to take advantage of a cooling summer breeze and hung by four mule harness trace chains, they are perfect for conversation, contemplation, or an afternoon nap.

Each signature swing is constructed by our family of artisans, using hand selected materials and time-proven, traditional joinery techniques: pinned mortise and tenon for the arm rail, tongue and groove for the seat. Wood Studio takes great pride in the craftsmanship and choice of quality materials used in each swing. This ensures each swing is constructed for generations of enjoyment.

Our standard swing size is 80" W x 22" H x 36" D and comes with four 10' long trace chains. Wood Studio builds this swing in lengths from 5 feet to 8 feet long.

Wood Studio builds this swing out of a variety of materials including poplar, red or white oak, and sassafras (the building materials of the originals). We offer our swings unfinished, or with a variety of custom finishes and colors. Wood Studio offers a single color milk paint, or two color distressed milk paint finish with exterior varnish, or we can complement the natural color of the wood with a select mix of natural oils and waxes. We are open to special requests for other select materials or finishes.

Each Signature Selection offered by Wood Studio is 100% handmade by the Cochrans. We guarantee that each piece will be free from defects in craftsmanship and materials for as long as the piece and the Cochrans are around. Wood Studio builds each piece to provide for generations of enjoyment.
