Very wise to use pine first. I made my first one out of cypress, wished I hadn’t. Your chair looks great. A good coat of paint and you have a very good “pine” chair.

Jakes Chair is a great adironondack, I’ve made a few of them for myself and friends over the years. They’ve all held up really well and are very comfortable. I made a few out of cypress as well, they weather really well, but each one eventually developed a split in the arms, not enough to bother its functionality though. The only alteration I made to the plan over the years is to double the thickness of the upper back support, which I’m pretty sure i picked up as a recommendation from someone on lumberjocks! Oh, and make sure to use stainless steel screws with the cedar!

-- Jay,

Thanks for the tip on doubling the upper support and the SS screws.
