Adirondack’s I built for Cronk – Black Walnut with Arm R Seal filler and poly (I think 5 Coats). The plans are from Wood Smith – they were the best plans I’ve seen. I use brass screws with a counter-sunk brass washer – gives it a nice look. Ended up getting burried building them so I quit them for a few years.

More Photo’s of same and some others (cedar) I’ve made over the years.

thanks so much for posting this!!! I like the countersunk washer—and screw combo…very nice…

The table looks nice…I am thinking of a small table in between the two chairs and maybe some foot to add to my two chairs…

Hi Schroeder;

Beautiful work! Great workmanship.

That is some of the prettiest walnut I’ve ever seen.

Very nice work.
I purchased the plan on-line long ago(not sure it’s still there). Intended to make one, haven’t started yet.
Just asking many man-hours spent to make one chair?

Thanks all! – They are always a fun break to build and as a bonus you can sit and have a beer when your done! Woodworm – I’m not sure how long it takes – I didn’t keep track, but batched them. Seems like they wern’t more than 10-15 hours for four – the cedar that is, the walnut has to be pre-drilled. I’m using solid brass screws, so I had to run a steel screw in to pilot the hole – the walnut chairs took about three times longer.
