There are two hallmark features that make an authentic wooden Adirondack chair according to experts; a three foot raked back and wide arms. This is why we build all of our original chairs with thick wide arms, roomy seats, tall 3 foot raked backs and thick sturdy legs. We use Mahogany, Red Western Cedar, and Ipe woods because each is durable as well as strong. To help withstand the elements of Mother Nature we use 316 stainless steel carriage bolts to attach our front legs and arms to the back brace board. We attach the seat and back slats with 316 stainless steel and powder coated wood screws for Ipe wood. .
