Here’s my try at a couple of Adirondack chairs for the deck. I used an old Woodworker’s Journal plan for the chairs. I used cypress and finished it with 3 coats of Sikkens Cetol natural. They are very comfortable and lightweight.

That looks like what I need….. Where did you get the plan? I would love to digitize it on Sketch Up and share with Lumber jocks.

Great Job… I love it.

I found the plan in an old Woodworkers Journal magazine. Someone told me it is also online as a free plan. I don’t lnow the site. A search would probably find it.

I think your try was very successful! I could use some of those around the pool.

Very nicely done.

We differ. You consider light weight a virtue. I consider heavy weight a virtue. Here are mine, made of ipé, one of the heaviest woods in the world. I may have a couple of the heaviest Adirondack chairs in the world.
