Adirondack Chairs

From the artist: “I craft these chairs from plans that my father used from the early 1950’s, and each time I make them, they bring back many fond memories. I make them using poplar wood. Each chair is assembled with brass screws and exterior wood glue. Then, I stain them with Minwax Gunstock stain, which I seal against the weather with two coats of exterior semi-gloss spar polyurethane. The curved backs make these chairs the most comfortable ones you will ever sit in. They are perfect for an evening on the porch with a nice glass of wine, or in my case bourbon, for you and your spouse.”

These two exquisite chairs will provide many years of relaxation.

Estimated Value: $600
