Showed my chiropractor some pictures of my work. She liked them so much she wanted 3 for herself.

It’s funny where our new customers come from!

At any rate, that’s a great looking Adirondack chair—I love the color of that wood (cedar?)—looks like it belongs in the great outdoors! I’m sure she’ll really enjoy seeing and sitting in them every day!

I like this design and have used it a few times. Curved back and seat are SO much more comfortable than the flat design. Nice work, thanks for sharing.

Great job. Wish I was sitting in one now.

That is gor ge ous.
The finish is deep and dark. How did you do it? Finishing baffles me.

Oil based urethane. Used about 4 coats of it. Leaves a semi gloss finish, but really brings out the color and grain.
