There is no easy answer to why Adirondack chairs are so expensive. A lot goes into the design of these chairs which I believe is a big part of the reason that do seem to cost more than others. Their design isn’t a simple basic design like most others, so their manufacturing process is more difficult.
You are really going to enjoy using these this summer. We made templates of our Adirondack chair pattern pieces out of luan. Now when we make new ones, it’s easy to trace where to cut on the wood. Our first set, made years and years ago, finally rotted to the point that we had to throw them out, so making a new set is on our spring “to-do” list.
These days materials and designs may vary—recycled plastic Adirondack chairs are having a moment—with one constant: Thomas Lee’s insistence on generously wide armrests endures.
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.

I've also gone through a lot of these.....haven't found the solution myself other than to head to Home Depot to replace. They are very comfortable and durable, but don't last forever.

What an awesome project! Great tips for making these chairs. I love how they turned out.
These Adirondack chairs have a seamless look. The backrests only have five planks but are still wide and long. The armrests are extra-long and wide and the seats are higher from the ground compared to other Adirondack chair designs.
