I completed this, my first Adirondack effort, in March of last year. From design (my own) to finish, I spent nine weeks on this thing. It’s on the porch with a for sale sign on it, that I attached to it almost a year-and-a-half ago. Part of the reason it took so long – at least half of the time was in designing it – is that I find the typical Adirondack style rather boring, kinda cookie-cutter. So, mine had to be different. And, different it is. Just as different as all the rest. It’s so different, it inspires diffidence. I knew nothing about the style when I started. So I looked at a lot of pictures – I can’t tell you how many different Adirondacks there are out there -, built a model to get the proportions, and lost sleep over it it for nine weeks. There it is. On the porch.
I’m not whiiiiiniiiing.
The back is made of planed-smooth Cedar gate palings. The rest is Douglas Fir. No metal.
