Building Adirondack Chairs

          During the Christmas tree sales season in 2015 I decided to put up a sign that I would make Adirondack chairs for any who wanted them, and to my surprise 27 people signed up.  I have since made many more.  The pictures shown below outline the construction process.

We are offering these chairs for sale.  They are made from 5/4 pressure treated decking boards…the same boards used to make outdoor decks.  This wood is thick enough and durable enough to give long service.  It resists deterioration outdoors and does not require paint or stain, though either can be applied if desired.  I also make footrests for the chairs, and have made some benches as well.  All of these items can be ordered.
