UBC Sculpture Swings by Peter Fortune

July 11, 2014 West Wind Artwork & Hobby WoodworkingCustomer Projects

Peter Fortune is steam bending these visually interesting swings using our White Oak. This is what he says about the project:

“Basically we are producing outdoor furniture on campus to make design solutions that are one on one for students. These furniture pieces are swings that are also suspended sculptures and conversation pieces/starters.”

We can’t wait to see these come into fruition. Good luck with the project Peter!

Here is a map to where the benches will be placed so you can check them out yourself when they are complete!

  • Heat-treated and ammonia dipped which creates a natural dark colour throughout the board (think caramelizing an onion).

  • Can be nailed or glued down – Radiant heat warranty.
  •  Available in 8” 10” 12” widths 2’-10’ long.
