Cedar/Fir Log Adirondack Rocker, Model# T-24N339MB
Cedar Log Adirondack Rocker
Quality leaves much to be desired. Most logs were split, many more than half way through the log.

Good Value, good product, very comfortable
I recently bought two of these chairs. The price is excellent and they're quite nice and very comfortable. The quality of the cedar appears to be very nice. I believe these are a good value.
On the down side, they are not easily assembled. There are more than two dozen pieces and not all are pre-drilled. If you are NOT proficient at working with wood or assembling many pieces from minimal instructions, I wouldn't suggest these. The manufacturer should pre-assemble the seat and back and that would make a lot of difference. In this case, no two boards are attached.
They come ready for paint, stain or sealer or to be assembled as is. I chose to stain the chair. Assembly as always is a bit of a pain but my electric screwdriver saved me a lot of work! If you follow the instructions step by step and methodically lay everything out in the order in which the instructions recommend the chair comes together great. Use patience!
One final tip: If you finish them, use a high-quality exterior penetrating oil because and finish the pieces BEFORE you assemble them. It will save you time and far better protect the pieces themselves.

Cracked All Over
I was looking forward to this chair. When it arrived I opened the box and the wood was cracked all over the place, now I know that cedar does have natural cracks, so I wasn't too concerned. I put the chair together and when I would tap the pieces together more cracks would appear, and being disabled with a partially paralyzed hand I was not using that much force. Then when I put the final small screws in the pieces cracked even more and I had my drill motor on the lowest torque setting. Then when I sat in the chair even more cracking occured, I tried to salvage the chair by using wood glue and then Gorilla Glue. Now it just looks like garbage, I guess when the lawn men come I will have them take it out to the burn pile as that is what I feel this chair should be used for.

Easy to build and a really nice rocker for the money

patsys rocking chair
Great chair for decks, solid and very comfortable. Chair is a little tall for me and edges of front of chair uncomfortable if you are wearing shorts but mainly because I have short legs. but I have had other deck furniture and this is by far the best. The instructions were a little complicated if you are not "handy" with assembly but my husband was so we were able to figure it out. but as for the chair, very pleased.
