I'm an Adirondack chair built for two, I started out as basic lumber you can find at any hardware store. My two amazing builders saw the potential in every peice of lumber they hand selected. My boards where planed to thickness, ripped to width and choped down to size. They rounded all my edges to be more comfortable and sanded me smooth. When I was all assembled I was taken out into the sunlight and a generous amount of water seal is applied to every surface. Some times there are other benches in the work shop and they have some color, some are red, some are moca and some are different shades of brown. WOW, is what the people say when they come to take us home!
