I use to build lapstrake skiffs from cedar. At the end of the day I always sat on a milk crate while having a beer and admiring my boat. I figured I could do better than a milk crate to sit on so I built my first chair around 40 yrs ago. Friends and neighbors wanted chairs and Maine cedar Adirondacks evolved. I retired from the state after 37yrs of service and proceeds are paying off my daughters collage bills. I have a quality control officer ( my dog Doc ) who tests all furniture before sale.
