Me and my brother made a couple of Adirondack chairs for a charity auction and for my grandparents. They are pretty easy to make and we are thinking about trying to sell these to make a little money on the side. How much would you pay for a set of these. They're made out of solid maple and are pretty comfortable.

I've got a buddy that built some last summer and I think he put them up for sale for 80$. To be honest im not sure if he sold one or not.

If I bought one it would have to have the leg extention otherwise I just dont think there all that comfortable. I bet you could get 80-100 dollars for them.

I would agree. Around here most solid wood chairs sell between $80 and $140, but that is with the foot extension.

How much do they cost to make? Based on the ~$80 guess here, maybe go a little lower than that to sweeten the deal. Maybe varnish them too, just to increase the value. The chairs look good though, well done.

Well, so much for that idea. Material alone is about 60-70 dollars a chair. That includes wood, screws, glue, and varnish. It takes about 3-4 hours to make one. I really wouldn't want to sell one for any less than 150 to make up for the cost of material and the time spent on them.

Hard to beat that little guy in China working for $2 a hour. Mass production also makes it hard to compete.
