Review of the Woodland Cedar Swing Set by Leisure Time Products
We had an steel swing set for several years but our daughter, who turned seven, was getting a little old for the small sliding board the swing set included. We decided it was time to get our daughter a new wooden swing set with all the bells and whistles including a rock climbing board, giant slide, tree-house like perch, swings, and a cool nautical inspired glider.
This swing set kits comes in three very large rectangular boxes plus the sliding board that is packaged separately. The instruction booklet is easy to follow with each page showing a pictorial view of each assembly that includes the wooden parts and fasteners required for the task.
This wooden swing set is very detailed with many wooden parts and fasteners and you and your children will be impressed with the final results! Assembly is part of the journey to wooden swing set Nirvana and it will take you several days to complete so don't expect to knock it out over a weekend. It took me about seven days to complete assembly working both on the weekend and during the evenings after work.
The fit an finish of the cedar wooden parts are good with each part fitting as described in the manual. Sometimes you have to loosen a part you already attached to the swing set in order to fit the newly installed piece.
Cedar is a great building material for wooden swing sets because it is naturally bug, decay, and rot resistant. In addition, cedar has a good strength to weight ratio making it light enough for the average homeowner to hoist the wood girders in place.
You may come across wooden pieces that are cracked during the assembly process. Fear not, as Leisure Time Products is very good at replacing cracked pieces and will Fedex the replacement parts to you at no cost.
Leisure Time Products has a great wooden swing set rot and decay warranty program. They will charge you only a prorated amount for replacement pieces up to five years from purchase date. The first year they will replace cracked wooden parts at no cost.
My daughter simply loves her new wooden swing set with tree house like perch and wooden picnic area below. I am sure that your child will love the Woodland Swing Set as well!
