These are another batch of Adirondack chairs. They are made from 5/4” x 6” pressure treated lumber as well with a 2” x 4” and a couple of 2” x 6”. All are PT. I have had a lot of folks asked about my plans wanting to make some themselves I don’t use plans to build anything. I can however explain how I do it. It there is interest I will do a detailed blog with cut list and everything to build these chairs. The relief cut in the seat is key in these chairs being very comfortable to sit in especially if you have a bad back. Thanks for looking

Man, Hoss, they look comfortable!

Hope you didn’t have the problem I had with my first set- had to take them back apart to get them out of the basement shop!

Looks comfortable. I think contoured seats are essential for these. Great job sir.

BTW, where is your snow?

Lovely set,
Unlike you I used plans,
So rewarding to sit in your own hand made chairs.
