Default Chairs for the lease

Had some time and lumber laying around so I built these chairs for the lease , itís only because watching old fat guys break and fall from those folding chairs isnít too funny when itís you and no drinking is involved

I have some Adirondack chairs in my back yard that are 6 years old with no sign of weakening, theses chairs I designed a bit taller than the classic pool/beach side Adirondack .

Iíve used oil based kilz primer and oil base exterior paint on some and Thompsonís timber oil on others I have in my back yard, tried the spar urethane but the sun blisters it up after about 12-18 months

I was looking at these yesterday. They are made in China, and reviews are crap.

I would rather buy up to 4 from you if you end up going that route.....

That was the problem I saw with most out there for sale they were very poorly made, and I wanted to buy some but didnít like what was for sale on Craigslist or locally so I decided to try and make my own. I canít sell on here but if I decide to sell some I will let yíall know where to contact me, kinda busy today with kidís stuff but I will get back to yíall that asked.

Might suggest you do some wood plugs to fit in the screw holes. Would hide them and make them more weather tight. You can get a hole cutting plug and cut some out of some scrap wood...

Great looking chairs and workmanship.

Been filling the holes with wood filler, just learning little tricks and shortcuts to building things. I just got me a pocket hole jig too

Yeah it was laying around since deer season ended, we cleaned around camp after season and threw away bunch of older chairs. So I had put off building these .

Great looking chairs. I bought some at McCoys similar to theses but yours looks a lot better. Now you got yourself a new job to pick up lease and spending money.

Haha no such luck the guys at the lease tried to give me some money and I said no , so they gave my 2 boys (7 and 10) a few bucks since they helped me build them so now they claim anything and all donations from the chairs .
