Adirondack chairs adapted from plans in Wood Magazine. I changed the the slat pattern on the back to mimic a shell pattern. And I added a shape across the front to lighten the appearance of the front of the chairs. The Center slat rises up enough to support most people’s head.

Looks great! What thickness of stock did you use for the slats?

They look great. I really like the look of the backs. And the paint job looks really good

Great looking Adirondacks—I love that clamshell look to the back slats!

And that fuscia color—gotta wear shades to sit in those puppies!

Haha, thanks, might be your monitor or the lighting, they are actually dark red. I built this set for my Great Aunt, I built a second set for myself, but someone else liked them enough to steal mine.

A+ for aesthetics on this one. Well done.
