These were my first woodworking projects in over 20 years. I used plans from Rockler to make them. I made them out of cypress and finished them with spar urethane. I also made a coffee table for the deck made from cypress and teak, using mostly scraps from the chair builds and teak cut offs I got at my wood store. And lastly this year I built a child size adirondack chair for my daughters first birthday, I used what teak I had left for plugs to cover the screw holes. I have to refinish the adult chairs already, I put the finish on too thin so it has already failed.

Great looking set of Adirondack furniture! The chairs a very comfortable, and I’m sure you’ll get a lot of good use from them!
