I posted my new plan for the Adirondack Beach Chair on January 23rd, and painted the pine prototype in white to match all the others on my point….but today I finished 2 in African Mahogany. As with the wood trim on my sailboat, it should last for years, even after being in the water occasionally. All joints and plugs are fastened with Gorilla Glue for water proofing and durability. I applied one coat of boiled linseed oil to show off the color, knowing that it will probably need a power wash and another coat every spring, if I don’t like the grey aged look.
The first image is on the dock, and I am confident that they won’t blow off in the wind due to the weight. The second image shows the chair in the lower position in the water….the beer went down quite well in today’s heat !!! The white pine chair is very light, and makes a great portable beach, ball game or soccer pitch chair to throw in the trunk of the car.
The last image shows the templates cut out on 1/2” baltic plywood, using a ShotBot CNC with my DXF file. These were done by Grants Pass HS in Oregon. Check here for more images.
