A muskoka chair from the heart of Muskoka…

I’ve had the plans for one of these for a while, and finally had the chance to build some for one of my good friends who wanted to bring some of muskoka back to the city with him.

I would say the most popular chairs around here (Muskoka, Ontario Canada) perfect the dock or deck.

This one is made of pine and finished with Puritan Pine Stain, and outdoor Poly.

Thanks for viewing

Very nice, i like the wood you used. By the way, I’m a boat builder and your area has some beautiful examples of classic mahogany boats. I’d love to go there.

Chair looks very comfortable and well constructed. I really like the finish and the setting in which you took the picture. Very inviting.

hey Napaman…

the difference that I have been told, or read somewhere that an Adirondack chair has five back supports and the Muskoka Chair has seven…but other then that pretty much the same chair…

Long ago I dated a girl from Toronto who gave me a lesson on the Muskoka chair. Ever since, any time I see a chair named after a location in the US, I think of that location in Ontario. This is the first time I’ve heard anyone else use that name though.
