Does anyone know where I can purchase a 'sunlounger' with an adjustable reclining back? ie similar to those found by swimming pools and on the beach - either wood or plastic will do. :D

If you happen to find any, let me know too. I have been looking for a year for something approaching an Adirondack chair, with no luck. (Well, I found one in Bangkok made of teak for 30,000 baht + shipping! :( ) I bought some from Global House about 9 months ago, and they are already on their last legs, and I am looking to replace them.

Other than the wood ones sold at the fairs and on the side of the road, (which are usually quite uninspiring in their construction) I have seen nothing outside of the couple that Global House or Home Pro carries, and the last time in Home Pro, they had none. Home Pro did have a plastic banded one like what you are talking about around 4 months ago, so they may restock it at some time.

You might try the outdoor furniture section of Index on the ringroad. I 'seem' to recall seeing some there. Probably pricey, but worth a check.

For Akwoodworker - I was rather hoping that you were going to respond to Tex's posting with a price for sunloungers. I could be interested in a couple too. :D

The chairs will be in the 5k range each and the leg rest for either style will be in the 1k range. I am using recycled wood due to its stability but refinishing them with new stain and outdoor polyurethane. I can use other wood but the cost would be different. PM me if you're interested.

Russ

I found a place on Nong Khai road. but could always use extra for other projects. The main reason for using recycled wood is the stability. Proper wood drying is not understood here and I won't build a solar kiln until I live here full time.
Thanks, let me know

I don't know that this fits the description of an Adirondack chair, but these were available at the OTOP fair going on at Tungsrimuang today. Sorry, I didn't check the prices.

As you're facing the fairgrounds from Phosri rd, the vendor was to the far right, toward the rear.

AKW:


I am real interested too.

You are absolutely right about the wood curing...

One problem I see again and again: The outside chairs and loungers available here, seem to be short lived; particularly those in regular use by us portly, older gentlemen...

Could/would you make a special XXX size/weight capacity?


Best Regards,

Red

Well, if I can find the vendor, I am going to ask if he can make a pair without the urethane stuff they glop over everything wood outdoors here. If so, I will order them instead of buying the ones that Parrot has a picture of. It might not hurt to ask the vendor your question re: oversize and heavier weight wood. However, a decent wood Adirondack chair should last many years if properly taken care of. :)

Ok, stopped by the place today, after looking for a while. ;) Those chairs were 'Thai' size, but the lady was happy to order me two in 'farang' size. ;) The Thai ones are priced at 5900 baht, but she will go down to 5000 baht. The farang sized ones (4 inches wider and 2 inches higher) on special order were 7000 baht each for two. The wood used is plenty thick enough to support MOST farangs. The seat slats looked to be about 3/4 of an inch thick.

For those of you looking for sun loungers, she also has an adjustable wooden one in her catalog that looked to be quite comfortable. I did not ask the price on it though as it was hot and I wanted to get to the car. :) It was adjustable for reclining position.

To locate the place, they are in the main part, before the stage in the back before the fountain pond. They are NOT in the far back where all the other furniture is. Phone is 086 862 7119.
