Well seeing how I live very close to the Adirondack Mountains, I thought that I would build Adirondack Chairs. The first chair that I built is made of Fir Flooring reclaimed from my attic (Long story there). anyway I had this wood so I decide to build one. I’m very glad I did. I epoxied the leg end grain and polied the whole chair with five coats. I then wet sanded the arm rests and buffed them to a very smooth surface. There’s the mechanic coming out in me.. The other chair in the pictures is one I built for a client. It recline so she can sun herself without changing chairs. It’s made of pine and the recline part is my design.

This is a nice project. These are timeless it seems and very popular.

You did a nice job with this one. I can see myself relaxing with the back reclined while my wife is mowing the grass. (It is nice to dream but trust me it isn’t going to happen). :)

thanks for the post.

Man I love that reclining chair. Excellent work!! Care to share a picture of the “recline part” for those of us who may want to try building one?

Nice addies! Great cupholder solution! Please post plans (sketchup, napkin sketch, more photos) of the recline assembly if you can.
