I made this furniture from cedar fence board purchased from a big box store. This seemed like a good idea at first, but if I had a mulligan I would pay a bit extra for better stock. I used plans for the chairs and improvised with the ottomans and porch swing. I can’t say that I use the furniture as much as I had hoped, but I am happy with the curb appeal and it is surprisingly comfortable as well. I used some nautical techniques for the rope as I didn’t want the look of chains and if you do not use the correct knots you can lose quite a bit of rope strength.

It’s a shame you don’t use them more, because they’re a great looking Adirondack set! I’d be out there every evening with a nice bourbon!

Looks good. I wish I had a porch that would accommodate a porch swing.
Well done.

Dean the problem is I have a sun room in the back of my home that faces south so I always gravitate there!
