These are a pair of Norms Adirondack chairs made from Toasted Poplar. The Toasted Poplar is a royal pain to work with – Imagine trying to screw in to a Kingford Charcoal nugget…. It’s pretty close to that, well almost. Working with it creates a very fine dust that smells great after taking off the respirator. Due to the brittleness of working with the toasted poplar these chairs are made at 7/8” not the normal 3/4” and that makes a huge difference in work-ability. Made as a gift for the sister-in-law.

Looks nice…and the wood is a good color match with the dog!

Great looking pair of Adirondacks—the pooch seems to approve!
