Clarks Original Adirondack Chairs

Building Our Wooden Adirondack Chairs

There are two hallmark features that make an authentic wooden Adirondack chair according to experts; a three foot raked back and wide arms. This is why we build all of our original chairs with thick wide arms, roomy seats, tall 3 foot raked backs and thick sturdy legs. We use Cypress, Mahogany, Red Western Cedar, Ipe and Treated Yellow Pine woods because each is durable as well as strong. To help withstand the elements of Mother Nature we use galvanized, stainless or bronze carriage bolts to attach our front legs and arms to the back brace board. We attach the seat and back slats with either stainless steel or powder coated wood screws and premium Titebond III outdoor wood glue. 

Balanced and Durable Adirondack Chairs


We do not build our chairs with little stick legs or narrow back boards with large gaps between them. We use thick one and a half inch thick boards for the front and back legs which provides more surface area to screw and glue down the seat and arm boards. This makes our chairs tough and sturdy and less likely to split out over time. Now what about the all important Adirondack chair arms? All our original designs feature traditional wide one inch thick arms because simply put they make the classic American iconic chair what it is; without them you would not have that perfect spot to place your drink, plate of food, book or anything else. It is our goal to make our chairs well balanced, eye catching as well as strong and long lasting. 


Assembled One At A Time

No two pieces of wood are exactly the same. This is why it is best for us to assemble our chairs one at a time. Using this type of detailed craftsmanship allows us to make sure that each and every Clarks Original that leaves our shop goes together correctly and is our best. We are very confident that when you get ready to assemble your chair it will go together the way it is suppose too.
