Swinging chairs: Adirondack porch swings fit two or three people and are a lovely way to relax on a summer evening.
3. Sell It: Post the furniture set on local community boards: Your neighbor just might be in the market. Try your local Facebook Buy/Sell/Swap groups, or Craigslist, to sell it, or give it away via Freecycle. .
Keeping an Adirondack chair clean is pretty easy. Spend some time every week rinsing it down with warm soapy water and a garden hose. You can also add a few drops of dishwashing liquid detergent to help break down stains faster if you feel like it might be necessary. If you are using wooden Adirondack chairs, you may need to do some refinishing after a few years of usage if you want it to look very new as you bought from the market.
Thanks for all of the good ideas- I'm going to try this stuff next: it supposed to set in a minute - cure in an hour. It says that it works with "Most plastics"- so we'll see.

Although projects similar to this one are rather common fare for most woodworking magazines, Popular Woodworking hasn’t offered one to readers for more than 10 years. The project has been discussed, of course, but for one reason or another, it never happened. Then one day the phone rings and a representative of “The New Yankee Workshop” asks if we’d like to work with Abram to build the most popular project ever shown on the show.

Before calling your hauler to check on the bulk-waste option, try to find out which type of plastic your patio furniture is so you can confirm with them whether or not they accept that type of plastic in their bulk collection.
In addition to the power tools listed above, you will need to gather these to build Adirondack chairs. This list is per Adirondack chair, so if you plan to make multiple chairs make sure to multiply your screws, bolts, and wood by the amount of Adirondack chairs you intend to build. Our plan is to build 4 chairs so we multiplied each by 4.
You are really going to enjoy using these this summer. We made templates of our Adirondack chair pattern pieces out of luan. Now when we make new ones, it’s easy to trace where to cut on the wood. Our first set, made years and years ago, finally rotted to the point that we had to throw them out, so making a new set is on our spring “to-do” list.
High heat and excess sun can damage poly resin, and if you’re in an environment where the weather gets very hot, say over 100′ regularly, you may want to bring your poly resin chairs to a shady area in those times.
Traditional Adirondack chairs are well known for their wide and deep seats, large armrests and for providing all-around comfort. With some companies, if you don’t ask, you won’t be able to work out if the wood was created using sustainable practices. On the other hand, when you buy an eco-friendly Adirondack chair you can have that feel-good feeling about doing your part to help your environmental surroundings.
Thanks for sharing. People really do love these Adirondack chairs. They are in stock at my Costco in CA, but I’m sure they won’t last too long on the shelves. Glad you found them!
I've also gone through a lot of these.....haven't found the solution myself other than to head to Home Depot to replace. They are very comfortable and durable, but don't last forever.

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.
