Incorporate elements of nature into your indoor living space with The Decatur all-natural solid white oak porch swing. White oak porch swings are an excellent choice for a robust and durable porch swing. In addition, the all-natural white oak porch swing is the perfect choice if you want a swing with little to zero maintenance.
While white oak is naturally rot-resistant, minimal sun and moisture exposure will increase its performance. We recommend a covered porch or patio for all-natural wooden swings. Organic white oak porch swings are also perfect for indoors. The absence of stains and paint makes it safe indoors around people and their pets.
There are benefits of using natural wooden swings that are free of paints and stains. First, you never have to worry about damaging the finish. Any fine scratches on the surface will usually blend in with the wood grain. Since white oak is very hard, it will take a severe beating before any scratches are noticeable. Second, you can sand away any fine scratches or markings with 240 or 320-grit sandpaper. Finally, soap and water can easily wash off dirt and other markings.
Many products we use daily are mass-produced in factories, most overseas. So there are many unknowns when buying an imported porch swing. As a result, it can be challenging to know whether a product you’re purchasing will be of high quality.
We do things differently at Georgia Swings. For example, we don’t build barn doors or tabletops. Instead, we focus all of our attention on just building swings. An American-made Georgia Swings brand porch swing gives you confidence that your product is constructed with care and made of solid natural wood and high-quality finishes. We’ve detailed the process below, so you’ll know what to expect when placing an order.
Building a handcrafted porch swing from scratch takes time. When placing an order with Georgia Swings, you’ll get to choose the size of your swing, the type of wood, the color of the stain or paint, an optional topcoat finish, the seat depth, the hanging design, a cup holder option, and an option for swing cushions, depending on the product.
As you can see, your swing is entirely customizable, and going through the process of crafting a custom-made item starts when placing your order. Remember that we will only put your item into our queue once your order is received, and peak seasons have longer lead times. Therefore, the fastest way to receive your porch swing is to place an order as soon as possible. Once you submit your order, the building process will begin. We do not cut corners and rush through the necessary steps. We perform detailed quality assurance checks throughout the process to ensure that every swing meets the highest quality standards.
After you’ve decided which porch swing design to buy, you’ll begin by choosing the type of wood for your swing. The standard wood options for porch swings are western red cedar, kiln-dried pine, or white oak. Bed swings are made from western red cedar unless specified otherwise. You’ll also get to select the length of the porch swing and the seat depth of the swing.
Once the wood is selected, the parts are fabricated by surfacing, ripping, sanding, routing, jointing, and assembled before moving on to the finishing stage.
We recommend buying a Georgia Swings brand hanging kit since they provide exceptional quality and stability. There is no need to worry about sagging bed swings with our high-quality rope kits.
After preparing the wood and assembling the parts for the porch swing, we move on to the finishing stage. There are various stains and paints to choose from for your swing. More transparent and natural stain colors bring out the natural color of the wood you select; there are also darker stains, like Jacobean or Burnt Hickory. Also, you can choose a solid white or black paint finish for your swing.
If you’ve chosen a stain finish, you can select the clearcoat option, which will help protect the wood against UV rays and moisture. Adding more coats of clear urethane also makes a smoother finish. We recommend at least two urethane top coats if you want a stain finish on swings made from western red cedar.

Custom shipping pallets are designed for each swing. The pallets are constructed of solid wood to provide a secure way of transporting your fully assembled swing across the United States.
