Patrick Garrett of Maine Cedar Adirondacks

Uncategorized

My name is Patrick Garrett. I’m a retired state worker that loves to build things for fun in my garage. My wonderful sidekick Doc (pictured below) serves as my quality control operator. I started building cedar lapstrake skiffs in my free time when I was around 25. At the end of the day, I would sit on a plastic milk crate and admire my boats while drinking a beer or two. That’s when it dawned on me; I could do better than sitting on a milk crate and so I started building my first cedar Adirondack chair.

Over a short period of time many friends and neighbors wanted these chairs , often asking for a table to go with the chair or an ottoman along with other things. Over what is now around 25 years of building furniture I have listened to my customers of what they like and what they do not like. I use quality Native Maine White Cedar, Stainless Steel Screws and Galvanized bolts. I custom build each and every piece myself. My work is by no means factory standard but is made all by hand with as much attention-to-detail as any carpenter can provide. When I state my furniture is hand made; it all is. I enjoy building quality strong furniture that will last and I enjoy the expressions of those my work speaks to.

I have a small shop at my home where, now that I am retired from working for the State of Maine, I have more time to devote to my business. Most of my sales are from word of mouth, my web site and three local craft fairs through which, I am a vendor. Please look me up and come and enjoy. http://mcadirondacks.weebly.com/
