I need some Adirondack chairs!!! I think I need to add them to my project list. They turned out great!
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).

As more and more outdoor furniture turns to imitation wood, it is nice to see a company that still makes Adirondack chairs out of solid hardwood. Nothing really beats the look and feel of real wood. Another benefit of Acacia wood is that it is a naturally gentle wood. So it is smooth to the touch and is rather scratch resistant. Making it a great outdoor chair for tall people. However, if you are heavy and wide, you may not find the 20-inch wide seat between the arms enough. So I suggest you read on and check out the next chair with a wider seat. Adirondack chairs are some of the most comfortable outdoor chairs you can get and this Highwood chair plays a crucial role for providing superior support for the tall person.

If the split is long, you might want to use a few parallel wire ties. The wire ties will last a season or two before they break, and will need replacement.
One thing that is often overlooked with these chairs is why they’re slightly heavier. While this chair weighs 33lbs which isn’t too heavy, some people will think it’s too heavy for a chair. The reason they’re heavier then your average chairs is it helps keeps them from being blown around in the wind outdoors. So having a bit of extra weight isn’t a bad thing.

Weather resistance essentially means unwavering against constant contact or changes in water, temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure.
For the past few years, we have had a pair of Adirondack chairs in the yard. They are made of teak I believe and have become very wobbly and rickety over time. Last Spring they looked like this:
Oak is impervious to decay and is also termite resistant. There are two types of oak: red oak and white oak. Red oak is a porous wood and absorbs moisture quickly. It must be oil-sealed regularly.
The measurements above are the minimums. Anything above them is really good for the big tall people who want extra comfort and relaxation.
