I’m happy to have finished my first set of Adirondack chairs. As my first attempt, I decided to follow the plans (Woodworker’s Journal) instead of just making something up. I added two, on the fly, modifications. First, the number of slats seemed too few (plans called for 11), so an additional slat was added (12 total). On the next set I would use a ¼ inch spacing and use however many slats from front to the base of the back. Second modification, I added a taper to the top of the back legs to match the width of the back frame (upper). I thought it would look weird if the leg was wider than the back frame. I used SS hardware, deck screws, and Titebond III for assembly.

Overall I am happy with the way they turned out, very comfortable.

Thanks for viewing.

scvwood27, sure no problem.

Sandra – thank you. I really like the chairs you made (Lee Valley style). They have a clean look to them with the hidden ends of the seat slats. Nice work on you chairs.
