Concerns over deforestation may have you rethinking the traditional wood Adirondack chair.

There are two hallmark features that make an authentic wooden Adirondack chair according to experts; a three foot raked back and wide arms. This is why we build all of our original chairs with thick wide arms, roomy seats, tall 3 foot raked backs and thick sturdy legs. We use Mahogany, Red Western Cedar, and Ipe woods because each is durable as well as strong. To help withstand the elements of Mother Nature we use 316 stainless steel carriage bolts to attach our front legs and arms to the back brace board. We attach the seat and back slats with 316 stainless steel and powder coated wood screws for Ipe wood.

This is a very large Adirondack chair with the classic seven plank backrest build. The difference is that this pair has wider feet and seems to be designed to recline farther than other styles. A coat of wood stain covers this comfortable pair, therefore, its sure as the sun that it can last for a long time outdoors.
