Oak is a high-quality hardwood and is one of the most sought-after woods for premium furniture. It is tough, durable, and elegantly smooth after sanding. .
Teak: Teak is one of the most durable hardwoods on the market. A special oil found in the heartwood gives it the strength and durability to last a good 60 to 70 years. Even in weather conditions that swing from hot to cold and wet to dry, teak won’t split, rot, or crack. You will need to apply a sealant each year, but that’s it for upkeep. This popular wood comes at a high price, but you can leave it outside for years, and it will still provide a beautiful, relaxing surface on which to sit.
You want all of your pieces to match as closely to the template as possible. And you may have cut a few pieces a little rough, or not exactly on the template so you will want to sand the edges smooth. To do this you can use a spindle sander. I admit that I started out clamping matching pieces together to attempt to sand them together. But I eventually gave up on that and sanded each piece one at a time, stopping periodically to compare them to one another. This is the oscillating spindle sander that I have HERE.

It will stay looking brand new for years to come. Even in the harshest weather, this chair is meant to resist rain, snow and even has stainless steel bolts to prevent rust occurring. Ok so maybe you should clean the thing every once in a while, but other than that, this is the perfect set and forget outdoors chair built for larger sized people. The King size is what the heavy person will be interested in, however the Adult size may still interest people up to 350 lbs.
While most colors will only need to be cleaned a few times a year, colors like white, gray, or ivory and other lighter colors will need to be cleaned more often to maintain their original beauty. For the lighter colors, rub the furniture with a soft bristle brush and rinse off with warm, clean water. If needed, you can use a high-pressure washer; be sure to hold the nozzle more than 12″ away from the furniture when using the pressure washer.
Gilborn acknowledges that the multiplicity of designs and dearth of documentation make it difficult to be definitive about the chair’s heritage. But that, he says, exemplifies the wilderness spirit from which it was born. “Going to the Adirondacks you leave everything behind, including the rules of behavior and documentation,” he says. “It’s part fun and part irresponsibility.”
finally fixed my plastic chairs- no glues or epoxy worked - melding the plastic with a soldering iron may have done the trick - we’ll see if it holds.
The fasteners used to hold the chair together are made of marine-grade 316 stainless steel, and will not rust even if left outside in the rain or snow.
