Good full-sized plans made this task much easier. Veritas Tools Inc, Item 05L05.40 “Adirondack Plus” provided the full-sized plans. Somewhat pricey at $25, but considering the quality, worth the money. The footstool’s plans were from a different set of plans, but the height and width were quite close to the chair. There is an inner frame that the seat slats are attached to – which also provide the leading edge of the slot for the seat back to slide into. Lift up on the seat back and the chair leans forward to fold. Fairly heavy due to the frame support system because some otherwise permanent items must move in a folding chair. The design is good, the upright chair is sturdy. Follow the plans and the seat back fits like a glove. Home made nylon/plastic washers greatly enhance the smoothness of movement so wood-on-wood drag is eliminated. Pictured, it has sanding sealer, Golden Oak stain, shellac. Finish of Spar Varnish will be sprayed once the second chair of the set is finished. Both footstools have been finished with Spar Varnish sprayed with my new Earlex 2901P sprayer. For an inexpensive sprayer, it does a marvelous job. Goes from a minute fog to a “paint your house” full pattern. “No runs, no drips, no errors” as the man said. Last sideways picture shows the His-n-Hers set completed.
