Lisa's Chairs

I am quite please with the way these chairs turned out. No paint here. Lisa prefers to let the premium, hand-selected white oak to shine through. Three applications of Watco's Exterior oil finish should provide protection against the against the severe ocean climate where they will reside. As with my painted chairs, I do recommend covering your Weekenders when not in use for extended periods. Customers have highly recommended the Adirondack chair covers available through Plow and Hearth. They fit and have an elastic drawstring to close them up tight.

Annual Bahhhn Sale

My Annual Bahhhn Sale is now scheduled for November 20th and will be advertised far and wide in The Forecaster on the week before. You can expect to see several floor model Weeekender Chairs, Walden Walkers walking sticks, assorted rustic furniture as well as my rather large collection of gently used paperbacks. All will be sold at bargain basement prices. No reasonable offer will be refused. I must be crazy. Stay tuned for photos of inventory and updates as we get closer to November. Note: the two chairs shown are available for $295 each.

Home Again

These two Weekender chairs have just returned from hard duty at the West Gardiner Service Plaza of the Maine Turnpike. Considering the use and abuse they've sustained over the past three months I am impressed and proud of their outstanding performance. They are still rock solid and look as good as they did on the day they were "born". Welcome home amazing chairs!

Upcoming Events

In their July 2010 issue, Down East Magazine named us "Best Adirondack Chair Maker in Maine." And we've been working to fill orders non stop ever since. There's still plenty of summer left, so pick up the phone and place your order today. And remember, it's never to early to get a jump start on next summer. I'll be building Weekender chairs right through the winter. Now here's a word or two on some upcoming events:

I'll be at the Center For Maine Craft in Gardiner, Maine demonstrating rustic chair making on August 28 from 10-1pm. http://www.mainecrafts.org/ FMI.

I'll be selling my Walden Walkers Walking Sticks at the Labor Day Craft Show on September 4 from 9-2pm. http://www.mainecrafts.org/ FMI.

I'll be exhibiting by invitation at the Rustic Furniture Fair at the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake, NY on September 11 and 12. http://www.adirondackmuseum.org/ FMI.

Come on out and see us! Sit a spell and talk about the weather.

Break Time!

How does that old saying go? "Sometimes I sit and think. And sometimes I just sit." Today I just sit.
