So why isn’t it the top pick? Well, it comes with its fair share of cons. It is overwhelmingly tough, much stronger than teak, so it is extremely difficult to work with.
Before assembling your DIY Adirondack chair you may want to lay out all of the pieces for a sort of visual and to make sure that you have all of the pieces. Once you are certain that you have all of your pieces go ahead and remove the paper template pieces from your wood.
All those are important in landing the right size of this chair. You can’t gamble on them.
Attach the legs with the carriage bolts, heads to the outside. When tightening the nuts, prevent the head from turning by first seating the bolt head with a hammer blow, engaging the square corners underneath the head in the wood.
Next use a gauge block and a miter saw or table saw so you can repeat the same length cut exactly for the lower rear crosspiece, the front crosspiece and the seat slats. Use the pattern that provides the curved shape of the lower rear crosspiece. (Abram’s frugal, Yankee blood became evident when he pointed out that by using slightly wider stock than necessary for this part, the waste piece makes the perfect matched curve needed for the rear seat slat.) After band sawing, sand the edges smooth and be sure to set the waste piece aside for later use.
The recycled plastic material makes it water-resistant, and UV protected, which means it is easy to clean and won’t deteriorate.

Pine: While pine takes more maintenance than teak, it is far more affordable. This light wood slowly fades to an attractive gray. As a softwood, it’s more susceptible to dings, scratches, and, unfortunately, bugs. You’ll need to refinish it every year or two to keep the wood looking its best and to help protect it from the weather. But if upkeep doesn’t worry you and you’re on a tight budget, pine is an excellent choice.
If you’re at least an intermediate woodworker, making an Adirondack chair isn’t rocket science. It’s like building any other piece of furniture and maintaining a distinct framework.
Using a scissor, carefully cut out your template pieces. Then grab adhesive spray.
This part is time-consuming and messy considering how many pieces there really are for making Adirondack chairs. I ended up covered in sawdust, or as my 5-year-old calls is “wood fuzz”.
This is a very personal question that I can’t really answer for you since we’re all different. There will be certain body shapes and heights that will make getting in and out of these chairs difficult. Whether you have that shape or size I can’t really answer.
