Epoxy is good (jamie's suggestion) but if the chair is made of ABS plastic (which is a very common type of plastic) then you can "weld" it using pure acetone. Search "welding ABS with acetone" on YouTube for many examples of this.
Also, to make maintenance easy, this chair features a zipper function, which helps you to remove the cushion cover for cleaning easily. .
We picked up two at the EP Costco on Tuesday and are now looking for two more. Spoke with Michelle at SLP and she said they are in order but they don’t know when they will come in. St. Cloud had 10 available in the system so she had them hold two for us and we are grieving up there for them.
Polywood is not actually wood but a material made from recycled plastic. Consumers value it for the following traits.
Before a final sanding, I grabbed some fall-off cypress and cut about 60 plugs for filling the holes left from countersinking the screws. I used a narrow chisel to pop the plugs loose from the board. I glued the plugs in the holes, leaving them proud. A flexible, fine-tooth saw easily removed the excess plug material.
Now that you can build Adirondack chairs you can fully enjoy them. These are super sturdy and much better built than those rickety old chairs that we had. They are surprisingly comfortable too.

Hi Corey! Well done!It’s really helpful article.Most of the time it happens we discard a lot of things without giving it a second though which ultimately cost us unreasonably high.Sometimes it’s because we don’t have enough knowledge of the utility.Thanks for sharing such a valuable idea:)

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.
I LOVE YOUR POLYWOOD SET!! & how you styled it is so lovely & fun. Can I come have a margarita with you? haha seriously though it looks amazing!! xx
This material is strong, lightweight, and weather-resistant. This material perfectly improves the shortcomings of solid wood, which is easy to decay, crack, and mold, especially on rainy days.
So bad, right?! To get just a bit more use out of them I decided to paint them last Spring. Painting these wobbly old chairs gave them another season. This is what they looked like after paint: (you can find that project here: Painting Adirondack Chairs)
Yes, you can follow my technique but use a Rustoleum spray paint specifically formulated for vinyl. Happy painting, Rosemary!
In case you’re planning to purchase an Adirondack chair to use in the back yard, on a patio, or at the beach, at that point, the most fundamental and solid development may do the trick.
Glad to hear Tim. Thanks for letting us know. I’m with you as far as getting in & out. I have just heard a few complaints from older folks about it being low to the ground, which causes difficulty getting up and down. These chairs are designed low to the ground & most people usually know that when purchasing or using them. Thanks for stopping by
