Adirondack modification

After making two Adirondack chairs, I’ve come to the conclusion that while they are about 100 times more comfy than mass market chairs they could still be better.

I made the leg section four inches longer and cut a new angle for the seat to give more room in the seat. My only concern is how it will feel under the knees.

I’ve cut out one leg so far, I’ll do the other today and do a dry run on the seat for comfort.

I’m also going to lay the back out at a lesser angle, not a complete recline, but I want to find that perfect angle where you relax.

Good luck with that Russ, it’s going to very according to a persons height as to where they will be comfy or not, I guess all you can do is work towards a one size fits all approach .

I’ll show you a picture of it as soon as I get it together. I’m still in the design phase. Sometimes you need to assemble something to see if you need to cut a different angle. especially around the knees.

Can’t wait to see the finished project, if you need someone to test the chair I would be happy to, LOL.
