This project was long time coming and I am happy the way it turned out. These are cedar chairs with a Cedar Natural tone 501 sealer from the local big box store.

These are great. Did you design the folding system or did you use plans? Either way, do you have plans available? I would really like to make a couple of these.

They look great the first folding ones I’ve seen. Good work.

I’d love to see some plans or at least some closeups, I bought a couple kits of these but was unhappy with the quality and want to make my own.

This is a plan from Wood Magazine, I found this in one of their magazines called, Best Ever Outdoor Projects from the spring of 2008. I ordered the paper plans from www.woodmagazine.com, the number of the plan is OFS-1062. This is part of a series of outdoor furniture in the apple theme, which feature a glider, patio table and benches. One word of caution, make sure of your measurements of the chair back and the crossbar that is attached to the armrests (just above the grass) have to slip over the top to be bolted in the back of the chair.

Nice job. I made one years ago (‘97,’98 maybe) when the original issue came out. I loved it. Think the wife sold it on a yard sale one year when we moved. :(

Cool chairs, I like that you can fold them up for storage.

great chairs…JOhn…can you get more pictures of the folding parts/mechanisms…I am building a chair for a friend that will sit on the ground…and will hopefully fold into itself…not an adirondack…but your one picture of it folded is hard to see…just need some ideas…if you have the time…
