According to Elizabeth Lee, Thomas’s great- great-grandniece, “Uncle Tom” spent the years between 1900 and 1903 experimenting with different types of wood and various shapes, sizes and positioning before arriving at an angled chair with a comfort level unmatched by any other.
Think about anything you want to do outside. For example, reading an interesting novel in your backyard, garden or such places. Having a cup of coffee or evening tea, you have very wide armrests that you can use to put your mug as you enjoy your sipping session. .
Just bought four of these type of chair after doing a couple months of research into them (after seeing one for very cheap at Costco). Bought during the Memorial Day sale, buy 3 get one free, with free shipping. That sale seems to be over, but they still have a "special". They're not cheap, but are very comfortable, we like that the version we bought fold up nicely, and they have a relatively very long 20 yr residential warranty. We're expecting them to last for years.

But Lee and Bunnell’s slant-back chair endured. Permutations of the original design continued to appear, some from the workshops of weekend hobbyists, and others from the loftier circles of furniture designers like Gerrit Rietveld, whose 1918 “Red and Blue Chair” and boxy 1934 “Crate Chair” exhibit similar DNA. In 1938, Irving Wolpin of New Jersey patented a chair in the Westport form with a fan-shaped back and slats where Lee and Bunnell had used planks. It’s essentially the version we recognize today, and it appears throughout the Adirondacks, and even in Westport, where Lee’s design still holds court on some porches.
You can make this kind of chair for your own yard or garden and invite friends over to enjoy the view as well. At least you don’t have to chase after a ball anymore. Take this as an inspiration for your next woodworking project.

The first one to make an Adirondack chair was an American named Thomas Lee. He made his chair as he was vacationing in Westport, New York in the Adirondack Mountains in 1903. Called “Westport Plank Chair” Lee offered the design to Harry Bunnell who was a carpenter. Bunnell saw the possibility of commercializing the design and got a patent for it in 1905 without asking Lee’s permission. Bunnell manufactured the “Westport chairs” for the next two decades. The chairs were painted green or medium dark brown and each one bore Bunnell’s signature.
The recycled plastic material makes it water-resistant, and UV protected, which means it is easy to clean and won’t deteriorate. You wouldn’t have to deal with the cumbersome splintering, cracks, peels, or chips of a wooden chair. Fast and easy to assemble Nice vibrant color Solid and sturdy Don’t have to store away during winter Just wipe to clean Only able to fold if you disassemble the chair first Smaller than expected, not ideal for tall people Not as comfortable due to the straight back
These pine chairs will be painted like all my others, and the 2×10 used for the legs makes them solid as a rock and very sturdy due to the slayed leg style. I used the shape of the bottom back slat support, in the back legs braces as well as a filler strip attached with pocket screws to hide the bolts below the seat. The side leg braces act as the footrest supports which are attached by pocket screws as well.
But, I found that Gorilla Glue, as posted above, invariably has worked when Crazy Glue did not. Faster, less messy and less work than Epoxy.
I love spray paint!! I do wish there were a wider range of colors. I’ve learned to do several very light coats to avoid drips.
I was curious, found this: https://weldwarehouse.com/cgi-bin/einstein.pl?::1:WLDWH:1:803=8237
How did your clean time resin before spray painting? I’ve been trying to get this done for over a year. I’m using a nice Mediterranean Blue, think Greece.
