According to Mack’s book, Bunnell produced his “Westport Plank Chair” in a basement workshop and sold them for $4 out of a retail store on the town’s main street. By 1912, a version called the “Adirondack Bungalow Chair” was being sold through W.C. Leonard’s department store in Saranac Lake, and copycats soon followed. Bunnell continued to manufacture the chair himself until about 1930, producing variations that included an alternate-facing tête-à-tête version and another that converted to a rocking chair. By the time Bunnell died of pneumonia in March 1933, his chair design had found its way beyond northern New York. The newspaper notice announcing his death hailed him as the “manufacturer of the world-wide known Adirondack camp chair.”

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.
Instead of a rounded front, the seat extends to accommodate your legs. It is a bit narrow compared to other seats but despite these, it still makes a good chair to relax in when you are outdoors.

The Highwood AD-King1-ACE Adirondack Chair is an ideal chair for individuals with larger body frames. Compared to the standard Hamilton chair, this one is 6 inches taller and 4 inches wider. This chair has multiple reclining positions and can fold flat for secure storage.
We do not build our chairs with little stick legs or narrow back boards with large gaps between them. We use thick one and a half inch thick boards for the front and back legs which provides more surface area to screw and glue down the seat and arm boards. This makes our chairs tough and sturdy and less likely to split out over time. Now what about the all important Adirondack chair arms? All our original designs feature traditional wide one inch thick arms because simply put they make the classic American iconic chair what it is; without them you would not have that perfect spot to place your drink, plate of food, book or anything else. It is our goal to make our chairs well balanced, eye catching as well as strong and long lasting. No two pieces of wood are exactly the same. This is why it is best for us to assemble our chairs one at a time. Using this type of detailed craftsmanship allows us to make sure that each and every Clarks Original that leaves our shop goes together correctly and is our best. We are very confident that when you get ready to assemble your chair it will go together the way it is suppose too.
As for dimensions, can we just say this chair is huge and considerably easy to move around too. But I’ll fill you in on the important size measurements. Between the arms you get a generous 23 inches of space and for the actually seat its an extra wide and roomy 25″.
When you pare away all the myths and misinformation, Abram is just a very likeable, easy-going, hard-working, down-to-earth woodworker in a reasonably well-equipped, but not extravagantly so, woodshop. He was very much at home there. And it’s not a TV studio set with woodworking equipment, but a real woodshop. How fancy? I’ve seen far more extravagant shops belonging to home woodworkers than this one.
As with all furniture, Adirondack chairs do have a weight capacity on them. This capacity will vary depending on which model you go with. However, finding out that information can be harder then you think, with not every company being upfront about it. For me, this usually means they have an industry-standard weight capacity of between 200 and 220 pounds.
As a compliment to the Full Size Adirondack Chair, I have designed a Settee Kit to join 2 chairs together. This can be accomplished by building two new chairs from scratch, or joining 2 chairs that are already assembled. Simply remove the adjacent inside arms, join the chairs with 4 boards, then cut out the parts from the templates. After assembly, you will have a comfortable settee, with an extra wide center arm, and a matching lower shelf for magazines or plants. Some settee's I find too wide, and don't seem to match the rest of the chair. The slats in this kit match the size of the two seat slats on the chairs, and the curved arm pieces match the outer arms of the chairs. The front and back edges of the shelves, are also curved to match the proportions of the chairs. I have added an 8' market umbrella to my settee, which provides shade as well as protection from light rainch Plan includes Standard Chair and Settee. The downloadable instructions and templates are on Adobe Acrobat . The 1 square = 1" templates will print clearly for enlarging onto graph paper found at Staples Business Depot or most office supply stores, or you can make your own, with a roll of brown packing paper. They also include step-by-step assembly instructions, with pictures.
Built completely out of western red cedar, using plenty o dowel joinery and tasteful brass screws, this is a bit of a departure from the original plan which incorporated just 12 pieces of wood in its basic form and sometimes featured a footrest as well as storage under the seat.
