According to Mack’s book, Bunnell produced his “Westport Plank Chair” in a basement workshop and sold them for $4 out of a retail store on the town’s main street. By 1912, a version called the “Adirondack Bungalow Chair” was being sold through W.C. Leonard’s department store in Saranac Lake, and copycats soon followed. Bunnell continued to manufacture the chair himself until about 1930, producing variations that included an alternate-facing tête-à-tête version and another that converted to a rocking chair. By the time Bunnell died of pneumonia in March 1933, his chair design had found its way beyond northern New York. The newspaper notice announcing his death hailed him as the “manufacturer of the world-wide known Adirondack camp chair.”

Wolpin's design is the most commonly replicated Adirondack chair today.
The Deck chair measures 36” to the top of the curve at the front of the seat, the Bar chair is 30” and the Counter chair is 26”, measuring the standard 24” to the bottom curve of the seat. The plans will include all 4 chairs, as the only difference is the height of the legs and minor changes to the footrests if desired, and the wider seat slats of the armless chair.
