How To Build Adirondack Chairs - During the spring and summer months when people sit outdoors, talk, rest, or just watch the skies, a favorite option of seating is your Adirondack Chairs. So, just what is the Adirondack Chair and why's it so common?
Adirondack Chairs are often found in outside settings. In Canada, they tend to get called Muskoka Chairs (the title coming from the Muskoka District Municipality in which it's common to see many cottages and outside seating areas).
It is said that Adirondack chairs were made by Thomas Lee in 1903 when he needed some outdoor chairs while his family has been on vacation in Westport, New York. The legend says that he cut off eleven slats of timber from one piece of timber and place them together to create the seat.
Lee knew Harry Burnell and he also knew that Burnell needed some income and gave him the blueprint to get the chair. The seat was initially called a Westport chair. Burnell filed a patent for its design and did not comprise Lee in the patent.
