These Adirondack chairs and benches were made from pallets. I have been tearing pallets apart for several yeats and ran across these 1” x 6” sticks and thought they would be great for lawn furniture around our newly purchased home. Now i am getting orders for them.

Todd;

Nice chairs! What kind of wood and what was your finish?

Thanks for sharing.

THANK YOU! The wood is pine, 1 1/8” x 5 1/2” wide from pallets. All my chairs and benches are from recycled wood. The finish on the two chairs is a red mahogany #251 from Varathane. The bench is also red mahogany #225 from Minwax. I have recieved far more compliments on the Varathane (chairs) . I used a lacquer finished on the chairs.

Nice chairs…but what really caught my attention is the backdrop…your Mustang looks like my first car I ever had. Brings back some good ‘ole college memories.
