These Cedar Adirondack chairs and planter boxes are made from reclaimed wood from my family’s farm. My grandfather built the barn this lumber came from around 1925. The family is trying to sell the farm, so I scavenged lumber were I could. The tops around the planter boxes (there are two) are from local Black Walnut trees that have blown down over the years or needed removal for residential development.
I built two chairs for my wife and myself and one each for my mother and uncle. They are popular with them and I’m trying not to let the cousins and other aunts & uncles know or I’ll be building many – many more. Still, it’s nice to have a little piece of the legacy; 19 cousins and 4 more aunts and uncles…sigh, may have to change the name to the “Gnarly Adirondack Shoppe”: )
