As a compliment to my Adirondack Chair, I have designed a Settee Kit to join 2 chairs together. This can be accomplished by building two new chairs from scratch, or joining 2 chairs that are already assembled. I removed the adjacent inside arms, joined the chairs with 4 boards, then designed the center section to compliment the outer arms. The front and back edges of the shelves, are also curved to match the proportions of the chairs. I have added an 8’ market umbrella to my settee, which provides shade as well as protection from light rain.
The 2 position foot stool fits my Adirondack Chair as well as the Settee. The fourth image shows the lounge position on the left, with the front legs folded under and held in place. The right side shows the footstool position. The legs are splayed outward to give the stool stability and to prevent the legs from folding under, when someone sits down. The stool is large enough to create extra seating for quests or to use as a table. I put washers between the legs and side panels allow free movement, especially when painted. Stop blocks prevent leg movement.
