Finished this chair just in time for Saturday night barbecue. I used the plans from Fine Woodworking magazine, No.192, August 2007. The wood came from a home center store; the redwood lumber prices are reasonable there. I believe there is a mistake in the plans: the armrest support blocks should be 5”, not 5-3/4”. Alternatively, the armrest width has to be reduced by 3/4”. Otherwise, the numbers don’t add up. This is the only modification though.
The chair is pretty comfortable, even more so when there is a pillow under your head and neck. Looks like after close inspection and testing by the family, I now have to make three more Adirondacks.
The last picture is the chair without seat and back slats.
