High Quality Building Materials
Our Clarks Original Adirondack Chairs are built with top choice durable woods. When hand selecting our woodstock we look for board straightness, color consistency and as free of knots and surface damage as possible. Here are the woods we currently use; Cypress, Kentucky Yellow Poplar, African Mahogany, Red Western Cedar, Ipe and Treated Yellow Pine. The bolts we use to attach the legs are either galvanized, stainless or bronze. The seat, arms and back slats are attached with powder coated durafast wood screws and premium outdoor Titebond III wood glue.
Beautiful Sturdy Long Lasting Designs
For optimum strength, aesthetic beauty as well as symmetrical balance we use one and a half inch thick boards for our chair front and back legs. The larger leg boards provide more surface area to screw and glue down seat and arm boards which makes our chairs sturdier and less likely to split out over time. Our original Adirondack chairs feature wide one inch thick arms because they make the chair what it is; without them you do not have a true American iconic chair. Remember a well balanced Adirondack chair is a thing of beauty as well as strength.
"Handcraft One Chair at a Time"
After the cutting and sanding are completed we start assembling each chair "One at a time". This way we know that each and every chair that leaves our shop is our best. Every piece fits correctly and proper attention has been paid to all details.
