I should mention that a few people have reported that the chalky residue didn’t go away after they painted their chairs –– no good.

The wood is considerably dense which is what gives it its ability to handle heavy weights. The natural oils in the wood also give it natural protection from the weather.
If you like the Adirondack style, then I want to mention and encourage you to visit ADK Home in Old Forge, New York. They have a Facebook page but they don't display much in inventory there.
