Cedar/Fir Adirondack Chair with Ottoman, Model# CS-001KD-O
comfortable chair but needs improved
The chair is comfortable and looks good, but already needed repaired. The screws at the rear of the armrest pulled out when I leaned on it to shift in the seat. Granted I weigh 210, but the screws were too small in diameter and length. I also found rounding the corners on the armrest, and top board of the ottoman improved the comfort. For the price, I am still satisfied with my purchase.

Very good value
Bought a pair of the chairs and ottomans and found them to be a good value, what I liked was all the pieces were made out of one piece of wood, no finger joints or glued together strips of wood. Assembly is easy, and I used a wood preservative with a light redwood coloring and they came out looking sharp. I am happy with the purchase!

Best Value In Unfinished Porch Furniture!
My wife and I could not be happier with this furniture set, We also purchased the recommended table.This was the best deal out there and Northern Tool is always a pleasure to to deal with. We were able to get three pieces of furniture for what most other retailers were asking for a chair. We stained the furniture mahogany red and the end result looked like something you would see in Crate & Barrel. Cedar is a light and delicate wood so you will want to use this furniture accordingly and enjoy your summer beverages is comfort and style.

Adirondack Chair and Ottoman
This product was great value for the price. It was easy to assemble and I especially liked that it was unfinished cedar wood so that I can stain it. It also has a flat back which is easy to paint whereas other chairs have a curved one. The chair comes with the back and seat partially assembled. It is lightweight, yet sturdy. I will purchase more in the future. I wanted to try the ottoman with it. It is very comfortable to sit in with this addition.

Great for the value
Definitely not the $199 chairs sold elsewhere, but a fantastic buy for the value. They look great on the back deck.

Adirondack chairs with ottoman
Very delighted with these chairs. Ottoman is a little lightweight and flimsy so when I ordered the 2nd set of chairs I got the ones without the ottoman. The chairs are very comfortable. Also, very nice wood...stained very nicely.They were very easy to put together. The holes were lined-up very well.

comfortable and easy to assemble
This chair was easy to assemble. I bought one with the footstool and one without. One of the footstool pieces was cracked and the company was very good about sending me a replacement.
The chair is comfortable and attractive on my balcony. The only thing is because the wood is unfinished, it may not weather well and/or may need to be sprayed with a protective finishing coat.
Overall, a good product.

a little on the fragile side.
I really like the chair design and its very comfortable. It could have been built a little sturdier though. A heavier guage of cedar would have been better. I would not recommend for someone too much over 200 lbs. I did like the fact that it took a stain nice and I could pick my own color. I bought two chairs twio of the matching tables. They really look nice on the front porch.

Cedar Adirondack Chair
Easy to assemble and stain. Very comfortable. These chairs are ideal for a covered porch. We have 4 on our porch and they look great. The whole family can sit outside and enjoy the weather. A great classic look.

Built with good quality cedar and fasteners, the chair and ottoman look great and are easy to assemble. Some Watco oil and sealer and it gleams....
The chair has a design flaw:
The arm rest is joined to the frame by screws going up from below. Those screws only have about a thread & ½ hold in the relatively soft wood. NOT nearly enough. I moved the chair on my deck, using the arm rest, and the joint just parted. That is a 'factory' joint and not part of my assembly process.
I will through-bolt it, and accept the countersunk head in the otherwise finely grained cedar, but this should be a better piece of joinery.
Note: I liked it enough though to buy a second set!
