Project Information

I've always been an avid DIYer but have only recently (over the last 18 months) been able to get involved in woodworking for pleasure and began looking for a project which wouldn't tax my inadequate skill set too much: I decided on trying to build an Adirondack chair, which seemed to be a quite popular subject.

It took me a little time as I'm learning carpentry/woodworking skills "on the fly", but I, and more importantly my wife, was pleased with the results so I thought I'd share my rather crude 1st real project, which is not in the class of others on this forum, and invite comments and criticisms which hopefully will help me to impreve.

Thanks, Zac. I'd already given it two coats of Sovereign Building timber treatment, brown, which is durable but does weather quite light so I expect I'll need to retreat it next year.

Nicely done chair. One of these days I'm going to make me a couple of adjustable ones.
I agree, the feet will prevent weather stains at the bottom. I'm writing that down.
