The NEW “Westport Adirondack Chair – Revised” is a revised design of the first Adirondack Chair: the “Westport”, created in 1903, by Thomas Lee. The characteristics of the 1903 version is a single back chair with an inclined seat and wide arms. In Jack Briscoe version of the Westport, he has a triangle theme and has added his own twist to the chair. He has used pocket holes in the joinery, or pocket-screw joinery, which involves drilling a hole at an angle into one board and then joining it to a second board with a self-tapping wood screw. Pocket hole joinery has become the new standard for strong, precise wood construction. Also in the construction of the chair he has used wooden biscuits. An oval-shaped, highly-dried and compressed wooden biscuit, (usually beech), is covered with glue which expands the biscuit, further improving a bond that is often stronger that the wood itself. Biscuits also has become the new standard for strong, precise wood construction.
