Wood is the traditional choice for Adirondack chairs, going back to the late 1800s. When properly maintained, wood can look gorgeous, and give a classic flair. However, the reality is that keeping your wooden Adirondack chairs in good shape takes work! Sanding, painting, staining, cleaning, patching broken slats, etc. are all painful. .
Notice our ugly carpeted porch in this picture? A future project is to replace the deck and add a railing in. But that’s for another day.
Shorea: If aged wood in shades of gray and silver appeals to you, you need an Adirondack chair made of shorea. Some types of shorea start as light brown and slowly take on a soft gray if left unfinished. Shorea resists bugs and holds up well in tough weather conditions. Other wood: Less-common woods you may find include hemlock, acacia, and fir. Hemlock and acacia are hardwoods. Fir is a softwood that is occasionally used to make inexpensive Adirondack chairs.

There are many options and designs of the Adirondack chair, but it bore down to two major ones in terms of materials. The materials include
I did the exact same thing this weekend. I used the same green. I used seaside for the blue. I also painted one ye!low & one red. Did the same w/ my yardsale lanterns. It prompted my husband to buy a matching patio umbrella.
This looks so relaxing. And I like the size and height of the table. Great setting. I’d like to make a reservation for sunset please.

Now install the back slats. To get the right look, proper spacing of the slats is important. Start with the center slat, placing it dead center in the back. I used four screws for each back slat, inserting one in the bottom, then made sure the top was positioned properly, then I secured it with three more. Be careful drilling the screw holes and countersink for the upper crosspiece as these must be done on an angle, drilling straight into the crosspiece, but at an angle to the back slat.
