Now that is one heavy duty chair. It would have to be one pretty feirce wind storm to move that puppy.

Did you have a reason to build one of this durability or did you just build it because you could?

Nice chair though.

Cheers and welcome to LJ.

Nice Chair, looks really well made and sturdy. Do you have plans? Where did you get the Cedar?

Now that's one of the few chairs I would feel comfortable letting my mother-in-law sit in. When she visits I have a redwood stump she sits on.

after the nuclear war, all that will survive are the roaches and this chair. Looks good

That is one solid looking chair! Well done and an inspiration to me; been getting the bug to build one of these!

Thanks for the comments - the reason I went with the thick look, I think it looks cool, and you're probably right that it would survive the fallout, or truck parked on top of it… The plans that I used with a little tweaking was from FineWoodWorking.com by Tom Begnal - Curved-Back Adirondack Chair. I moved the arms out 2" so the average American butt can fit into it, and used thicker dimension. The Western Red Cedar I purchased at http://www.simmenlumber.com/ in Sacramento, CA… Thanks for the feedback!!!
