I built these chairs for one of my wifes friends as a christmas gift to her son and his wife. They really seemed to like them and now she wants me to build her a swing as well. These were actually very easy to build once I made a set of patterns. Overall this was a good project and I enjoyed building them.

Wow those are nice chairs! Great work! Is there any chance you could share the patterns? I’ve been meaning to build Adirondack chairs for my parents for quite some time.

Thanks for all of the nice comments and yes it is one of the more comfortable designs that I have seen. As for the patters, they were actually built from a patter that I bought online from Woodcraft. The patter was called, Resort Style Adirondack Chair. As far as sharing the patters I doubt I am able to do that as it would be against some kind of leagal stuff to post them online. They are full size patters so they would probably be hard to share anyway but they are about ten dollars at Woodcraft I believe.
The only thing that I may change when building these in the future is the armrest design. It is nice but it takes a pretty wide board and leaves a lot of waste to make that big swooping curve.

very sharp. I built one I found on another website. Nice, but not nearly as comfortable as these look. I may have to give it another go.
