Adirondack Chairs - Clarks Original Adirondack Chairs

How We Build Our Authentic
Original Adirondack Chairs


There are two hallmark features that make an authentic Adirondack chair according to experts; a three foot raked back and wide arms. All of our original chairs have been designed with thick wide arms, roomy seats, tall raked backs and thick sturdy legs. We use Cypress, Mahogany, Red Western Cedar, Ipe and Treated Yellow Pine woods for our chairs because each wood is durable as well as strong. We go an extra step by hand selecting all our lumber stock looking for board straightness, no surface damage and free of undesirable knots. We use galvanized, stainless or bronze carriage bolts to attach our arms and legs. The seat, arms and back slats are attached with powder coated Durafast wood screws and premium outdoor Titebond III wood glue. All of our original Adirondack chairs are built to withstand the elements of Mother Nature as well as party guests and children.

 Using Thick Wood Makes Our Adirondack Chairs
Well-Balanced and Lasting


Proper wood dimensions optimize our chairs for long lasting strength, aesthetic beauty as well as symmetrical balance. Our chairs are solid and sturdy because we use thick wide boards to build them. To put it simply, using one and a half inch thick boards for the front and back legs provides more surface area to screw and glue down seat and arm boards. This makes them more sturdy and less likely to split out over time. All our original Adirondack designs feature traditional wide one inch thick arms because they make the classic American iconic chair what it is; without them we would not have that perfect spot to place our drink, plate, book or anything else. It is our goal to make our chairs well balanced, eye catching as well as strong and long lasting. 


Old School Detailed Handcrafted Craftsmanship
"TLC" from Start to Finish


After we finish cutting and sanding our chair parts they are then assembled "One at a time". You might say this is old school; however this is how we know that each and every Clarks Original Adirondack Chair that leaves our shop goes together correctly and is our best. Yes, we are very confident that when you get ready to assemble your chair it will go together the way it is suppose too. Proper attention has been paid to all details.
