Nailess Sawtooth Hangers 2" by 5/16" for hardwood frames - Black Oxide Plated 25 PACK
The chair is designed with simplicity and requires little to no maintenance. However, it can become damaged when exposed to harsh weather. So it is advisable always to take indoor when not in use, more suitable for a porch. .
With the arm brackets in place, attach the arms to the front legs and bracket. Use the diagram at left to position the arm correctly before fastening. Again, be sure and use adhesive on each step of assembly as you proceed.
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.
2. Recycled HDPE (#2) plastic furniture is most likely not recyclable — because the recycled HDPE goes through a structural change when made into furniture — but is still a good choice because it uses fewer resources to produce than virgin HDPE plastic, and it is durable.
1) Wood vs “Polywood” plastic— I was surprised at how much the polywood just felt like cheap plastic. However, it has held up over the summer really well as it still looks brand new. So I would buy the polywood/synthetic plastic again over wood.

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

I'm in the West end in Mimico and I have these on my front porch! I LOVE sitting out on the front porch reading or staring at people and when my baby comes I'm sure I'll love it for sitting with him too! Here's a pic of mine with my new pillows: http://lealoulemonade.blogspot.com/2010/06/porch-pillow.html
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.
Hmmmm…. mine didn’t chip. Make sure you clean them really well and you may want to use a primer this time around just to be sure. Sorry to hear you had some trouble. That can be frustrating.
You should be able to find the local stores number. That’s a tough call because these are popular. If you are going to make the trip, go before they open. I saw these in stock the other day at my Costco & they were going fast. I was there around 10:30am. Glad you were able to get your hands on 5 though!
There is a reason why wood and Adirondack furniture go together so well. These chairs were first cut from wood around the Adirondack mountains, and so this material harks back to the very beginnings of this fashion in furniture. When you make a wooden Adirondack chair, you know that you are following a tradition which is well-established and that your furniture will be very attractive. Wood is also cheaper to obtain than resin-making kits, and much less intimidating to an amateur DIYer.
This a bit stylish different in height, unlike the regular Adirondack chair on the list. The height is lifted to provide more comfort for those that can’t sit too low. They are more suitable for older people that might find it hard to stand from a low seat and those with a back problem.

I used 2 different sheens (gloss and satin) and although you couldn’t see a difference when they were first painted, the satin lasted a lot longer.
