My first wood project was this art deco styled Adirondack chair finished in Jan, 2014. I started with no equipment except a power drill and that’s it. I used a plan from Minwax and adjusted it for style, I made it wider by 6 inches and added the stylized legs, back and arms. This was a gift to a friend who’s wanted one for her deck so it’s off to a good home.
