My swing seat needs some preventative maintenance..

589475


It's unvarnished, (but treated with summat, maybe waxed?) pine. Would teak oil be good on the framework?

What would the CC experts recommend on the seat (as teak oil would stain clothing, I reckon).

Teak oil or danish oil.

I don't think it'll be any use on the seat as it will stain clothing, won't it?

Divide the cost of purchase by 24 (months) ..
If the monthly cost is LESS than double figures, do nothing, and in 2 years set fire to it during a Viking themed barbecue.
Then buy another one ...
Repeat .....

If the 24 x division is double figures .. then you earn too much and you hate the planet !!

Well, write it down boy ......
OSMO oil, the outdoor variant. Pricy, but exceptionally good. Once dry, it won't stain clothing or anything.

Now we have the same problem.Mrs P has bought linseed oil,I am going to try it on the overhead frame first to see how it dries,before I do any of the other bits,playing safe,what we need is a long dry spell.

Serious question here. Not being funny,but what is the point of a swing seat? They don't look like they can swing very much,like those swings we see in children's areas of parks do. If they don't swing much as i suspect,why not just have a normal static bench?🤔
