From The Manufacturer

Southern Cypress offers the finest handmade cypress porch swings available. Handmade in the USA for over 13 years, all of our furniture is crafted from select 99% knot free cypress lumber. We only use brass plated screws and solid steel hardware. Cypress wood has long been known for its durable characteristics that make it ideal for interior and exterior use. This particular wood is known as “The Eternal Wood” because it is a very dense and naturally insect resistant wood that will be around for years to come. Cypress generates cypressene, a natural preservative oil, making the heartwood naturally resistant to insects, decay, chemical corrosion and other damaging elements. As such, Cypress remains one of the favorite wood choices for demanding outdoor applications such as fence posts, telephone poles, pilings, docks, railroad ties and of course furniture. Cypress is also a very stable wood, as it is highly resistant to splitting and warping. Dimensional stability ensures that the wood can readily accept paints and stains, although many people select cypress for the natural appeal of its honey-like hues, which can be maintained with a clear sealer or permitted to weather to a beautiful grey. Individually handcrafted in the USA. Select 99% knot free cypress. Can be assembled in 10-15 minutes. Back and seat come fully assembled. Back and seat nested with double bolts. Ready to be painted or stained (optional). No tailbone slat for extra comfort. Chains positioned to help prevent flipping. Staples are never used in assembly. Extra Wide Armrests for added comfort.

Be cautious with the cup holders that come with. Using cups that are too small for it could cause you to spill something on the swing, thus causing it to stain.
Has a lot of splinters
Well-made, but could use a little more strength in the frame.
​The chains are designed to thread through the arm rests, making it difficult to actually use the arm rests when the swing is assembled.
