This is the first of 4 new ‘High’ chairs using the seat and back from my Arm Chair, and the legs in 1 1/2” stock.
The chair will come with legs that can be trimmed from a 36” deck height, 30” bar height, and a 24” counter height, all with arms the same as my Arm Chair.

In designing the 30” Armless Bar Chair, I needed to trim the foot rest since the front legs are now inside the seat panels. I trimmed it to 5” deep from 7”, and the width of the back legs. To get it proportional, I widened the seat slats to 20” giving a 1/2” overhang on each side, because there aren’t front legs in the way.

Just raise a leg and have a seat. Thanks for looking.

That is a really cool looking chair. I bet it sits as good as it looks. I do think it stretches the definition of “Adirondack” chair about as far as it can go.

This stool is a really snazzy design Phil. It also looks very comfortable.

Thank you….and believe me, it IS very comfortable. The nice thing about the armless chair, is that you can sit at an angle with your other foot resting on the side brace, and your arm over the back :) It is easier to get on, compared to the one with arms that I am just working on.

Yup….that’s what I am working on now. Just cut the legs for the other 3 chairs and will start assembly Monday and start the instruction photos and writing…should be ready on all sites by end of April.

I would love to know if you will bring the plans out to have a mod that you could add some classic adriondack arms to this chair, will that be the case?
Also if wanting the chair to be a little higher will it work to just cut the legs longer???
Kind Regards

Absolutely, as indicated in the first post….

“This is the first of 4 new ‘High’ chairs using the seat and back from my Arm Chair, and the legs in 1 1/2” stock.
The chair will come with legs that can be trimmed from a 36” deck height, 30” bar height, and a 24” counter height, all with arms the same as my Arm Chair.”

Here is the prototype before changing the legs

Sorry, Maybe my English grammar interpretation isn’t as good as yours.
