So here is the latest pair of Norm’s chairs (mostly – I wasn’t able to get the full size plans so it’s based on trying my best to use the plans out of a woodworking mag article and I’m sure there are dimensions that are different. ) The set that has no finish is chairs 5 & 6 made of Cypress. Chairs 3 & 4 were out of Toasted Poplar (the assembly pic is all that I have) and have been given as gifts to the inlaws and the red ones in the background are the first ones I made out of pine last summer. They sit a little higher than a normal Adirondack chair and are pretty darn comfy. The toasted poplar has a great color and they made some happy inlaws! The Cypress ones I’m going to leave unfinished and let the weather do it’s job making them pretty (in a grayish way). I learned the hard way on the first two chairs that they BARELY fit out my shop door fully assembled so I to make life easier, all the slats were installed outside.
