I cannot settle comfortably in (expensive, no doubt) lodgings that are ill-lit and poorly planned so thank you for the tips you offer for making things feel more homey.

The extra-wide seat makes it easy for toddlers to climb into, and it has an equally wide, sturdy base. It’s ideal for kids ages 3 and up, with an 80 pound max weight limit.
Sorry to hear Jeffrey! Spare parts are cheap. It would be in their best interest to send you a few dollars in parts rather than return hundreds of dollars worth of chairs. Can I ask which part broke? Maybe there are others here that will be able to assist if we know exactly what part you need. Did you try calling & emailing them as well. Sometimes email works better

In the end, we made a couple of mistakes here in there but it was a lot of fun working together. As I mentioned, it was the first time Lauren had helped me and she quite enjoyed herself. There is just something so satisfying about making something with your hands and seeing the end result. We made two homemade Adirondack chairs so it does take some time to put together. When you count sanding, cutting, gluing, nailing and staining, it was about 10 hours worth of time over the weekend but well worth it. And if you've never sat in one, these chairs are quite comfortable. Soon we'll make two more to sit around the fire pit we just made! So use these Adirondack chair plans and go out and make some yourself.
