Our runner-up poly resin Adirondack chair is the Highwood Hamilton line [Amazon Link] [Wayfair Link] of Adirondack chairs.
Sometimes visuals just make it easier to realize which material checks all the boxes! .
It was nice how you weighed the pros and cons of the different types of materials that can be considered for the outdoor furniture. What appealed to me the most, however, was the cast aluminum iron. Like you said, it’s the best option for outdoor furniture because it offers more than just seating support. Maybe I should mention that to my parents because they were the ones who want to decorate the garden and a stool was one of the things that they’re considering. Thank you for the ideas. I’ll be sure to mention this to them.
When selecting the wood for your Adirondack chair, there are many factors that need to be considered. Design, style, durability, grain, patterns, and details all play roles in making a good wood chair. Generally, Pine, Cedar & Teak are the best woods for Adirondack chairs.
You should be able to find the local stores number. That’s a tough call because these are popular. If you are going to make the trip, go before they open. I saw these in stock the other day at my Costco & they were going fast. I was there around 10:30am. Glad you were able to get your hands on 5 though!
If you begin the project by preparing the patterns and stock to the rough sizes the building will move along pretty quickly. We completed our chairs in less than a day while working at a steady, but moderately easy, pace.
Using a scissor, carefully cut out your template pieces. Then grab adhesive spray.
Next, add the arms, then the back. Make sure to use a level and space your boards evenly. (The weather took a turn and we had to continue on the porch)
Before deciding on a chair material, consider how much maintenance you’re willing to put into the chairs. It might be worth spending the extra money for teak or polywood to minimize your maintenance requirements. If you’re willing to refinish the wood every year and keep the chairs covered when they’re not in use, you can get an inexpensive set of Adirondack chairs.
5.0 out of 5 stars Overall the chairs were not horrible to put together ****NOTE: I was ok with putting the 2 chairs together and I am handy.
Cedar: While not as tough as teak, cedar does make a more durable chair than pine. The wood has a natural oil that resists bug infestations and decay. Like pine, a cedar Adirondack chair will need to be refinished every year or two. Cedar naturally adjusts to the moisture found in wet climates, making it an excellent choice for chairs that will be left in the rain.
If you have plans of weatherproofing these, it would be best to do it BEFORE assembly. and a light sanding with 120 will even everything nicely.
Bolt the legs and side members together, bolt head to the outside with a nut and flat washer inside. Seat the square shank below the head with a hammer blow. The shank will prevent the bolt from turning in the hole.

My wife and I have been dreaming about our perfect patios for a while, and I think we’re finally going to get it done this year. I’m going to be looking for patio furniture once we get it done though, and I like the cast aluminium furniture! I’m going to have to talk to my wife about what she wants to decorate the patio with, and see what some options could be for us!
Our customers often rent trailers from U-Haul. It only works if they have access to a vehicle with a hitch and a brake light connection. Several folks said they paid $15-$40 for the 1 day rental of a Uhaul trailer if picked up and dropped off at the same location on the same day. Pictured is a 6' x 12' trailer. This trailer is the best choice if you plan to haul more than a few pieces of furniture.
