« Part 5: Mister sand man Part 6 of Jake's chair series Part 7: Drumroll please.......... »

My drive home from work turned into a big ordeal today, so made it home MUCH later than I wanted to. So when I finally did make it hone I went straight to the shed and got to work! I got so wrapped up in it I skipped dinner and all of the sudden its midnight!

Here are a few pics I took of the progress :b

It’s comin together, and its exciting to see it take shape.

Nice work! If I worked until midnight, I would probably hurt myself falling asleep on my feet.

Looks great. I like the curves in the legs and the back support. I just finished a set of Adirondack chairs over Memorial Day weekend. They are fun to build. The plans I built mine from were for the straight back style. I’d like to try your curved back style for the next time I build one. Can’t wait to see your finished photos.

Thanks Retsof,

I finished the chair, and I am going to post a final blog about it shortly. They are way fun to build, and I think it was a good first project for me. I’ve already got 2 friends asking to buy it haha. I have sat in the straight back ones, and the curved back makes the comfort so much better in my opinion. if it helps, here are the specs for the upper and lower back supports for this chair… Oops it won’t let me upload the file from my phon. but you can get the plans for free at if your interested. And the curves were freehanded :)
