  1. Adirondack Chairs

    This is my first project that I completed after starting to seriously get into woodworking. I made four of these adirondack chairs for the back deck. They're made from Eastern White Pine and stained with Golden Oak and covered in Minwax Spar Polyurethane. I probably should have gone with a...
  2. Pair of Adirondack Chairs

    I whipped these adirondack chairs together in one weekend. They are made of pine from Home Depot. I didn't use any plans, just what I remember from seeing my parents adirondack chairs up close. That being said, they were fairly easy to make. I primed and painted them so they would withstand the...
  3. End-of-the-world chair

    1 boring weekend + a bunch of scrap 2 X stock + a lot of planing/jointing = 2 Adirondack chairs for less than $60 worth of lumber and hardware. They are incredibly comfortable. So comfortable I told my wife on 12/21/12 we will drag them over next to our fire pit, put up our feet, pop some...
  4. Child Adirondack Chair

    I built this child Adirondack chair over the weekend out of pine. I'm really happy with it, although I thought it would be easier but found it to be just as much work as the full sized one. (just as many parts & screws) I'm thinking about using a wood supper glue like Mitre Bond on the next...
  5. Norms Chair Build (NYWS)

    I recently built this chair from the plans from Norms NYWS. It's built with rough cut Cypress. I picked up the lumber in the rainy season in southern florida and had to wait a while for it to dry a little but all in all I'm very happy with the way the build went. I had expected this chair to be...
  6. Adirondack Chair

    My father-in-law is retiring this year after a lifetime of teaching high school in New Jersey. He's also been a maker of Adirondack chairs, so I decided to honor his retirement with an Adirondack chair, although I'm afraid it may have turned out too nicely for traditional outdoor Adirondack...
  7. Adirondack Wall Template

    So I was scrolling through old photos, trying to organize pictures of my recent home renovation and stumbled upon this project that I forgot to post from last year. HA! I sometimes wonder how many of my projects DON'T make it to LJs just because I forget to take photos or simply don't have...
  8. Wine Barrel Stave Adirondack Chair

    This is not my chair and I am not taking credit for it, I just wanted to post it to show how beautiful these chairs can be when a ture craftsman makes one, not like my simplified and cheaper version. This chair was made by Jonathan Black of Bella Barrel (www.bellabarrel.com). These are pics of...

    This is my first project made from the New Yankee Workshop plans. It's painted Crayola Green.
  10. Adirondack Chair - Plastic Lumber

    This chair is made from the same templates as the Green New Yankee Workshop chair but made from structural (recycled) plastic. The plastic is very easy to machine. I routed the edges but didn't sand or glue.
  11. Adirondack Chairs

    Wanted a couple adirondack chairs to relax in this summer, so found the popular mechanics plans on the web and chose to build them, along with the side table. I chose cedar and put 6 coats of spar urethane on them, so hopefully they will stand up to the years of weather on them. I also got a...
  12. Adirondack Arm Chair

    This is my latest Adirondack design. I wanted to make it different than the typical offset front and back legs attached to an armrest, and keep a flowing back support. After a few mock-ups and full boxes of kindling, this is the final chair. I always get friends of various shapes and sizes to...
  13. Adirondack Chair with the help of a son-in-law and grandson

    My daughter and son-in-law visited for the weekend and we took the opportunity to build a pair of Adirondack chairs for them. As you can see the grandson helped, he had the drill after all. The wood was reclaimed redwood from a deck that was going to be torn down and burned. The design was...
  14. Adirondack Chair

    I have been working on this chair for a couple of weeks now. I first saw this design in Wood magazine many, many years ago and loved it. I finally got around to building it. The painted parts are redwood and the bright wood is western red cedar. Finished with General Finishes milk paint...
  15. Grandma Chair

    The hybrid chair…a little more dainty !!! Using a combination of templates from my regular Adult plan and the Grandpa plan, the Grandma Chair has the same 19" seat width as my standard chairs, but the height and comfort of the Grandpa Chair, which has become my best seller since it was...
  16. Adirondack Chair

    This was my first Adirondack chair made from scrap Western Red Cedar, stainless steel hardware, and oil based varathane. The armrest were biscuit joined to make the armrest wide enough for a paper plate. The chair has been well received. I bought the plans from FineWoodworking.com...

  18. Adirondack Chairs

    My daughter, Natasha, asked me to make 6 Adirondack chairs for her back yard out of pressure treated lumber which she plans to age naturally until grey. We have already installed a 45" diameter fire-pit. I chose Norm Abram's plan from "The New Yankee Workshop" because I have constructed about...

  20. Adirondack Chair prototype

    For my next project (this is just the 2nd thing that I've built), I wanted to build an adirondack chair. My wife and I love this type of deck furniture. I also wanted to make it out of all recycled materials and succeeded. All of the wood, plus the deck screws, were obtained from Freecycle. This...
