The Acacia wood used for this chair has some solid weather resistance though it’s not a good idea to let it in direct sunlight for an extended period of time. Cleaning this Adirondack chair requires a gentle detergent to prevent any kind of residue. As with other similar chairs, this model features wide arms and generally ergonomic construction. The vibrant finish will add a pop of color to any outdoor setting.
I’ve bought some stain, Inukshuk by Benjamin Moore. That’s todays project, pending I can find a paintbrush and a moment to myself. 😉 .
It comes in a number of stylish different colors which is something I appreciate as there will be something to suit your outdoor style. It has a total of 6 different colors with my personal favorite being white.
On the other hand, teak chairs stand up to harsh conditions and seldom need maintenance. They resist moisture and insects as well. The downside is that teak fetches higher prices than pine, cedar or cypress. This wood also weighs more, so it's best for a chair that stays in one place.
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.
The Elk Outdoors chair is resistant to water, so you can leave it out in the rain or spill on it without worrying about the chair soaking up the moisture. Instead, you can rinse it off quickly and easily with soap and water. It is also weather-resistant, so you can leave it out all year long if you want.
Pine: While pine takes more maintenance than teak, it is far more affordable. This light wood slowly fades to an attractive gray. As a softwood, it’s more susceptible to dings, scratches, and, unfortunately, bugs. You’ll need to refinish it every year or two to keep the wood looking its best and to help protect it from the weather. But if upkeep doesn’t worry you and you’re on a tight budget, pine is an excellent choice.
