1st attempt at any kind of chair. Figured i better build the 1st out of pine because I was bound to jack something up. Just started yesterday on 2 more yesterday. Western red cedar this time. I'll post pics when done.
Jakes Chair is a great adironondack, I've made a few of them for myself and friends over the years. They've all held up really well and are very comfortable. I made a few out of cypress as well, they weather really well, but each one eventually developed a split in the arms, not enough to bother its functionality though. The only alteration I made to the plan over the years is to double the thickness of the upper back support, which I'm pretty sure i picked up as a recommendation from someone on lumberjocks! Oh, and make sure to use stainless steel screws with the cedar!
