You see alot of differnt variations of the classic adorandack chairs. Her is one that I found pleasing, Made from used decking 5/4, planned down to 3/4”. It’s really amazing how nice a 10-20yr old deck board clears up after planning. Actually the armrest and middle seat back is a Lowes bought 1×8, only cause I didnt feel like glueing and clamping smaller ones to make the size. All screws are plugged- which made for ALOT of plug cutting. They are very comfortable.

James, I’d speculate that the chair on the right was made first. Then you changed the design of the lap joint on the second chair so that the grain ran through the entire top. In both cases, the chairs look great. Nice work and enjoy a cool autumn day on the porch.

You got it WoodRat, The half lap on the right chair is wrong-lol. I hope it doesnt come apart when someone heavy uses their elbows to prop themselves up! On both chairs the laps are glued and through pinned with a 3/8” dowel. Hope they they last for a while cause they look nice outside. Thanks

James, thanks for the response. Now I can tell my wife that I was actually RIGHT about something! She won’t believe me, but I can show her your response.

Those are awesome! I have favorited this and I hope you don’t mind if I try and replicate these one day!

I love the variation and the worn look, but it’s also reminding me of a very minimalistic chair for some reason… Great work!
