We can always count on the creative individuals selling through Etsy to inspire us with the grass-roots feel and care that oozes from their products. This reclaimed wood tree swing ($150) from Philadelphia based PegandAwl for instance had us instantly reminiscing of summers as a kid, where the our only responsibility was to (try) and return home unscathed each evening. Made from reclaimed old growth pine stripped from a floor joist in a 19th century house and sealed with natural tung oil, we wish the tree swings back in our heyday had been this robust. Measuring 32 x 7.5 inches with 24 inches of sitting room, the cost includes 25 feet of rope with pre-tied knots and instructions on how to attach it. If your particular spot for aerial mayhem requires more rope, just let them know and they’ll provide you with additional length for $3 a foot. Now just try to avoid the emergency room won’t ya?
