I have a friend who has mentioned on several occasions over the years that she wants me to make these chairs for her. She has not followed up to date so this Christmas she will get a surprise. These chairs are made on the Adirondack chair pattern produced by The New Yankee Workshop. I was disappointed in the lack of detail and information. I have made my own patterns and used others with success. I found this old printed pattern that undoubtedly I purchased years ago and never used. I gave it a try and the size and general shape are good, but I had to make many adjustments. The arms are set too close and the back brace that connects them is not wide enough. It lacks any notes on the approximately 15 degree bevel needed on the inside curve. The curve itself is wrong to allow the back boards to fit nicely. But it does work. I will correct these problems when I next use this pattern.

I made them of White Oak so they should last for years. They are primed and painted with house paint to match the trim on her house as she mentioned she wanted. Merry Christmas!

First thing I see is you have the same problem uploading to LJ as many of us do. But when I turn my head sideways I see some neat Adirondack chairs, nice job.

Nice work.

What is it with this site and some pictures? I wish I knew where to complain.

Sorry for the rant…
