That is really nice. I am starting to build the chairs like yours except you don’t set as low to the ground…perhaps one of these would work with them

Very nicely done! I imagine that you will have more than 6 to make before long. :)

You’re a victim of your own success, LOL
Very nice looking chairs.

Hello!Welcome to our addiction/hobby??
Everyone here is a little off kilter—it helps the imagination and other “logical” things fall into place!
I usually think ” another boring AD—chair” YOURS is definitely not boring—NICE I like the canted idea very much and will be borrowing it.
How much will you be charging for the ones you sell and what woods will you use? Appreciate the answer, thanks.
I am sure that others will also like the answer.

Great looking pair of Adirondacks! They look like a great place to sit and enjoy a cold one!

Ralbuck…for now I’m using pressure treated. Cedar would be preferred but that’s $$$$ I don’t have yet the material cost is about $120 and it takes me about 8 solid hours to build BUT I haven’t seen 8 hours straight in a long time. Kids usually interrupt as does the wife. I’m not sure what to charge I was thinking 250-300. I’ve seen similar sets for $400+
Here’s a link to the plans I used

I really like these angled chairs better than the straight ones. Makes it easier to visit. Thanks for sharing the link.

Great job on this chair set. And, don’t you just hate it when someone sees something you made and they want one of them yesterday
