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 screw holes should be pre-drilled for a couple reasons; to prevent splitting by drilling a pilot hole and to countersink sufficiently to accept a wood plug later. The plug not only helps the appearance of the chair, but will also add to the chair’s durability. We used a bit that drilled the hole and counterbored for the plug in the same operation. .

The benefit to plastic adirondack chairs is that they are more weather-resistant than wood Adirondack chairs and are easier to take care of and keep clean. While wood adirondack chairs typically require regular oil treatment to keep them looking nice, plastic adirondack chairs can just be hosed off or wiped down. Teak is one of the best woods for outdoor furniture, and is better than other woods like pine, oak, bamboo, or wicker — these other woods do not weather well and require lots of maintenance.
The hardware necessary to assemble the Adirondack chair is usually fairly minimal, and is often included in Adirondack chair kits. The purchaser of the kit will need to invest in some tools if he or she does not already have the necessary equipment; a screwdriver or drill will most certainly be necessary to drive in screws, while other tools such as a hammer, saw, file, Allen wrench, and wood glue may or may not be necessary to complete construction of Adirondack chair kits. Some kits may require the purchaser to paint the finished product, or stain it, to protect it from moisture from rain or other weather. Is Amazon actually giving you the best price?

Thank you for your comment. That is a great question. From personal experience Polywood is one of the best outdoor materials when it comes to withstanding all types of extreme weather conditions. From cold to hot climates, polywood does very well in any setting. They don’t even need to be covered during the off-season, their furniture pieces can handle exposure all year round.
