This is the forst chair I have built. I made it out of pine so I could make my mistakes on a low cost chair. I’m going to start making them out of a higher quility wood for holiday gifts.

Hi Rosco,
Looks like one of those great camp chairs of the far north NY country. I always do love the look of the rustic adirondack chairs. I’m partial to pine and am amazed at what happens to pine when top coated with tung oil, shellac and varnish.

Great piece of work and I know that the ‘whoever’s’ will have many sitting moments to give thanks for your gifts.

Have a very good day!!!

Nice chair, there’s nothing wrong with Pine. That’s all you have to do is seal the knots with Shellac to prevent oozing sap.

I can’t help but notice that you went with this view of the chair rather than the other two I saw…

Really nice adirondack chair, with a twist. I like the touches you did on the top to make it your design.

Nice. How long did it take to make?

I’m hoping to make a pair for my patio this summer. Thinking about using the woodcraft plans. (something else to justify the new router table to the wife)

Very nice! I’ll be following in your footsteps this summer with Pine also… I know it’s not as good as some other woods, but I like the look of it… especially when it’s finished up. :)
