Still makin these from discarded crates. Wood is treated with Old Timers recipe of BLO, Mineral Spirits and Tung Oil till the wood won’t absorb any more and then left to dry for 3 days. Then Painted with Acrylic Enamel Oil Based Paint with Added Hardener. High Gloss, Very durable finish. Modified Leg Pattern makes it much easier to get up out of the chair. I can’t seem to make them fast enuf @ $575.00 per set. My wife paints custom designs on the arms and backs for additional costs. I then Clear Coat them to ensure the designs longevity. Been getting orders for College theme chairs too! Next project is to make a FOLDING version. I’ll post that when I get it completed. A full set like these shown takes about 4 days to complete, IF the weather cooperates. I NEED a bigger shop!!!!!

Great looking set of Adirondacks! And congratulations on the sales—maybe you can use your profits to buy a bigger shop!

Nice chairs. I appreciate the improved ability to get up out of the chair. I recently made a pair of the folding chair with matching foot stools. Need to be spot on with measurements to get a snug fit on the folding variety.
