The yellow chair was built with pine and I designed it because I couldn’t find a detailed plan online. My wife says it sits great so I may build more later…

looks good…how did you decide on the angles for the back rest and the rear support legs?

Great design. The look of an Adirondack without the struggle to get out of it.

I’ve posted this before and I don’t want to sound like an advertisement, but I do highly recommend Norm’s adirodack chair plans. I’ve tried several plans and Norm’s has been by far the most comfortable. The chairs with the straight across back tend to hurt the spine. You can still alter much of the design… the tops of the back-rest and the arm-rest. In fact I do like your straight across design on the tops of the 5 back boards. Just some food for thought from a fellow woodworker. Keep making sawdust.
