These beach chairs are ready for summer action! One chair has the classic Adirondack charm with the large six panel back and swooping seat and one chair have an extended feet design. These chairs were made with tough, treated lumber made to withstand the rigors of cold salty air.
Oak: Durable and solid, oak is a popular wood for all types of furniture, and for good reason. It’s heavy, giving Adirondack chairs a solid feel, and it’s beautiful. The price is comparable to that of pine and cedar. However, maintenance is another matter. Direct sunlight can cause streaking or color changes. Oak chairs should be kept in the shade, and they will need a UV-protectant stain. .
They have incredible strength and resilience against weathering and fires. Consequently, they come with a heftier price than softwoods.

Traditional Adirondack chairs are fantastic, but they have one potential problem that keeps some people from enjoying them: They tend to sit low to the ground. If you suffer from any type of mobility issue, that may make them non-starters for you, even if you like the styling.
Mahogany: Mahogany rivals teak and oak for strength. It has a rich, dense grain and resists decay. It also has good scratch resistance, but it requires refinishing every year to stay that way.
These are awesome! I love that you used a pattern for the pieces. I have no doubt your entire family will enjoy the nice weather…when it finally arrives, in your new chairs! Pinned!
“There’s no comparison, if they don’t have the right dimensions,” she says, reclining in a replica chair outside Heritage House, a visitor and community center in Westport. “I can sit in one of these chairs for hours. I can sleep in these chairs. All of us want one to have because they’re so comfortable.”
