Wood is the traditional choice for Adirondack chairs, going back to the late 1800s. When properly maintained, wood can look gorgeous, and give a classic flair. However, the reality is that keeping your wooden Adirondack chairs in good shape takes work! Sanding, painting, staining, cleaning, patching broken slats, etc. are all painful.
