The verdict is that I would buy the polywood again. It is sturdy and durable. However, the design of the chair itself is not good. I ordered two of these and I had them put together in less than 45 minutes on my own! I am not handy at all so that should tell you something. They included a T handle hex key that is way better than those awful tools most companies put in their kits. Awesome chair and I couldn't be happier.
The Adirondack chair (also called the Muskoka chair in Canada) was crafted of 11 flat wooden boards and had the classic straight-back seat and wide wooden armrests. This chair was originally designed by Thomas Lee while vacationing in Westport, New York — a small town in the Adirondack Mountains. .
Thanks for the info, Corey. I didn’t use primer either and I feel like I used quite a bit of paint. I tried to use a sweeping motion while spraying and I was worried about using too much, but since you mentioned using a thick coat, I guess I didn’t use too much (even though I used more than one can).
I have accepted that I am a person who buys cheap lawn umbrellas every season for $25-$35, because I WILL leave them out during a storm. And the expensive ones don't hold up any better when they blow sideways.

In the late 1800s, the Adirondack Mountains were fast becoming a popular location for retreat among the wealthy of New York City. The publishing of Adventures in the wilderness; or Camp-Life in the Adirondacks by William H.H. Murray, spurred on the tourists. Willliam H. H. Murray is identified as the founder of the Outdoor Movement, and wrote the book for those who, “pent up in narrow offices and narrower studies, weary of the city’s din, long for a breath of mountain air and the free life by field and flood.” This book started the trend among city dwellers to vacation in the country.
Maintenance is pretty practically non-existent! Just wash the chairs with soap and water, or a power wash if you have a power washer. Use a mild detergent to get off any persnickety stains.
For now, the first set actually looks great outside of our cabin in the Catskills. It’s still pretty chilly up there.
These chairs can be quite comfortable, though they are often used without chair pads. The sloping seat design commonly found on Adirondack chairs, coupled with a curved back that is usually present, results in a nice, comfortable outdoor chair. The flat, wide arms always present on these chairs make it easy to rest a glass of wine upon, or perhaps just some elbows while reading a book.
I am a modern patio design and outdoor living enthusiast. Professionally and personally, I love working with patio and garden design and decor, as well as gardening.
This is a power tool challenge project where a few of my fellow bloggers and myself get together and create a project based on one theme. This months theme is Spring. We are building Adirondack chairs to welcome the warm weather of Spring. Each project must be created using at least one power tool. Make sure to check out these other projects. Links to each project are below the image.

Concerns over deforestation may have you rethinking the traditional wood Adirondack chair. If you want the look of wood without the environmental impact, a high-quality polywood can be almost indistinguishable from natural wood. Polywood doesn’t require the maintenance of wood and can hold up in extreme weather conditions. Recycled plastic is another option that offers a colorful addition to your backyard.
Wooden chairs can be hard on your backside. Cushions are usually sold separately, but they can make your Adirondack chairs much more comfortable. You’ll need to make sure the cushion fabric repels water and resists fading in sunlight. Cushions should be removed in the winter months if you plan to leave the chairs outside year-round.
