Westport Adirondack Chairs
An Historical American Adirondack Chair
Documented Adirondack chair history has the first Westport Adirondack chair being built in the state of New York in 1903. The chair was named the "Westport Plank chair" and was made and sold for over twenty years. We never had built the old historic chair until we were asked to do a special order by a customer. The finished chairs turned out to be surprisingly comfortable as well as extremely sturdy so we decided to offer everyone our version of the historic Westport chair. We build it with Mahogany or Cypress woods using extra large two inch thick boards for the back legs and one and a half inch for the front legs, everything else is made with one inch thick boards. We designed the seat with five slat boards for better water drainage rather than using only two like the original. Our 9 1/4" inch wide arms and beautiful solid one piece back are made just like the original Westport. This is a very unique chair as well as a beautiful replication of American history.
Allow for extra time to build Westport chairs due to the availability of the wide back boards.
