Hi, everyone. Name is Tom and I am new here, so I hope this is the appropriate forum. I have searched the forums and haven’t found an answer to this. I have also tried contacting Black & Decker to no avail. I want to build a specific Adirondack chair that comes up when searching Black & Decker Adirondack chair plans. The problem is, all plans that are associated with the pictured chair do NOT produce the actual chair, but a completely different one. Does anyone know where I can get plans for this chair, pictured in the link below? Thanks!

The chair pictured is what I want to build and the plans do not match.

Wood magazine issue 219 July 2013 has plans for one very similar to your picture and probably could be modified very easily to your picture.

The Jake's Chair design is very close to the B&D chair design. You can see the set of 4 I built in my blog link below. You can easily tweak a few of the design elements like adding a little more rounded seat bottom to get close to the look of the B&D chair.

These are very comfortable, wide chairs and the original set I built 5 years ago out of white oak are still solid and look great other than the usual silvering of the wood since I was too lazy to redo the exterior stain. They’ve been outside exposed to the weather that entire time.

The plans that Lee Valley sells look exactly like you picture, to me at least.

Thanks, everyone. Lots of good ideas, so pretty much can’t go wrong no matter which one I pick. I imagine I would have made a few cuts on those B&D plans before realizing it wasn’t going to build the chair I wanted. Glad I looked them over before going shopping. Thanks again!
