So with nice weather coming my wife and I decided it would be nice to have some Adirondack style chairs for our patio. She did some shopping and found that anything that wasn’t plastic was at least $100 a chair. I’m way too cheap for that. I went out and found some plans from Popular Mechanics (https://www.popularmechanics.com/home/how-to-plans/how-to/a709/easy-adirondack-chair-plans/). Then I figured out I had just enough quarter sawn white oak for two chairs, and when I say just enough I mean just enough.

I got them done just in time for the rain to start and a cold front to move though and drop the spring temperatures down 15-20 degrees below normal.

I always love seeing these types of chairs. I need to get off my butt and build a couple. I just hope mine look as good as yours.

Kinda looks like a Papa chair, and a Mama chair. Both are looking relaxing.

Love that patio, is that patterned concrete?

It’s just plain old concrete that needs a good power washing. We bought the house in August after it has been empty for close to two years. Lots of little maintenance things like power washing the patio still need caught up on since we moved in.
