    Default Adirondack chairs

    Does anyone happen to know where I could get my hands on a few wooden adirondack chairs (preferably on the north coast)? We bought 4 plastic ones about a year ago and use them all the time, but would like to upgrade to proper wooden ones as a little Christmas present to ourselves. We are located in Cabrera but could do anywhere from Puerto Plata to Nagua and would even consider Santiago or Santo Domingo if the price is right and the chairs are what we are looking for. Would love to hear if others have bought any, where they got them, price, and if they can recommend a seller or even a builder. Thanks in advance!

    take the chair to local cabinet/wood builder shop order two ...careful of the wood used... timeless (in other words u might have to ask questions about the woods quality of being outside...)

    We had 4 made right before we left in May, but on the southern coast, west of SD. Didn't take photos, but they look like the one you posted. I think they were 800 pesos each - we also had two matching lounge chairs made by the same guy, 1500 pesos each. When we get back next month we'll have cushions made.

    I am not sure where that is but I am heading that way this weekend so I'll take a look. Any idea what you paid?

    800 pesos each?!?!? That is amazing!!! Our plastic ones cost more than that each. Heck, I'd take a couple of those 1500 pesos lounge chairs at the same time. It would be well worth travelling down there (or sending a truck) for that price!

    If you can wait until we get there [late Dec] I can take photos of the ones we bought so you can see them. This isn't a place I can 'send' you to, this guy makes them in a building behind his house, and only sells to individuals who are referred to him. From what I heard, he makes all the chairs for the beach restaurants in Palenque.

    After we bought ours, a Dominican couple from SD who have a house near ours saw them, and loved them so much they bought 4 too.

    PS. These are unpainted/unfinished.
