Outdoor Furniture #9: Finally Finished!

788 days ago by Retsof | 7 comments »

It took me nine days from start to finish, but I’m finally done with my Adirondack Patio Set. I am really tired of painting too!

Like most of my projects, this one went from building “an Adirondack Chair” (as in one chair), to building seating for five. At least I’ll be ready for a BBQ on Memorial Day Weekend this year. I feel like I got a lot done today in between trips to the kid’s schools, a run to Home Depot, and some work in my vegetable gardens. I was able to get from drawing up and cutting out my templates for all of the curved pieces, to actually cutting out enough of the chair parts...
