Made of White Oak and used Stainless steel hardware. This was my first woodworking project. Used Woodworkers Journal YouTube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OH-gtLBkCKE&list=PLAze4TkkKYIag83zS1i7ORu8mBrRlH6yQ) and plans from Popular Mechanics (http://www.popularmechanics.com/home/how-to-plans/how-to/a709/easy-adirondack-chair-plans/).

The chair spends most of its time indoors.

Great looking Adirondack! You really ought to take it outside on a warm evening, and enjoy it in its natural environment!

That is a beautiful chair. Your first project is something you can be really proud of.

Thank you for making contours. Too many people build these with flat seat and back. I am a firm believer that flat is not comfortable. Great design and build.

I am not generally a fan of Adirondack chairs but this one is such a nice design and so well made—I think you’ve made a convert. Very well done!

This chair really looks like you could have bought it from the store! Definitely not something you’d make from scrap wood in storage at any rate!

PaulChau, thank you for the complimentary words. I chose White Oak because I wanted it to last in Bermuda’s harsh, sun-baked, salty air. Teak and Cedar are better outdoor choices but also more expensive. I had never worked with hardwoods before this project and I initially couldn’t believe how much harder it was than the dimensional lumber I was accustom to. This chair is very hard and very heavy and I’m sure it’ll last a fairly long time. Especially if I keep babying it by housing it inside. Happy woodworking.
