The Principal Difference Between the Two Popular Outdoor Armchairs. Overall, if they’ve been constructed true to their original intended form and design, the Adirondack will be 2 inches higher from the ground and measure 2 inches wider between the armrests when compared with its Muskoka chair equivalent.
All accessories (the footrest and cup holder) that comes with this chair are detachable; you can choose not to use them to save space.
Oak: Durable and solid, oak is a popular wood for all types of furniture, and for good reason. It’s heavy, giving Adirondack chairs a solid feel, and it’s beautiful. The price is comparable to that of pine and cedar. However, maintenance is another matter. Direct sunlight can cause streaking or color changes. Oak chairs should be kept in the shade, and they will need a UV-protectant stain.
Much nicer, right? But it was like putting lipstick on a pig. Paint made them look pretty, but they were still wobbly and rickety. I think we got our money’s worth out of those crappy old Adirondack chairs and now its time for something a bit sturdier and better.
What a beautiful place to relax and appreciate spring. Love the way you accessorized everything too!
These are awesome! I love that you used a pattern for the pieces. I have no doubt your entire family will enjoy the nice weather…when it finally arrives, in your new chairs! Pinned!

These units require no care other than a good wash down with water every so often. Just spray them down with a hose and you should be good to go. If there are any stubborn marks, just clean with a brush and some mild detergent to remove the stain.
Start installing the back slats with the center slat first, then the outer slats. The last two intermediate slats are then easily positioned with equal spacing between their neighbors.
While the design of the Adirondack chair hasn’t changed for decades, the materials they’re made of have developed over the years. Finding the right chair made of the right material for your climate may not be the easiest task.
They also need much less care than wooden furniture, as you do not need to varnish or refinish them every year. On the downside, resin furniture cannot be left out on hot days for very long, as this can cause the material to melt. It can also become very hot, which is not a positive thing in a chair. In addition, resin is not a traditional material for Adirondack furniture, and it may be hard to produce the home-spun effect of Adirondack in a plastic chair. While purchasing ready-made resin furniture can be expensive, getting together the kit to construct your own resin chair could turn out to be very costly.
Drill 1⁄4″ holes through the side members and front leg to accept stainless steel carriage bolts. Use a clamp to hold the parts in position; the leg should be flush to the side’s front edge and 113⁄4″ up from the leg bottom to the bottom edge of the front crosspiece.
