These are two Adirondack chairs I’ve made. The plans come from Rockler. I’ve seen a number of these and I like this design. I like the more solid, beefier look with it having 1.5 inch thick legs. Cypress is the wood and all screw holes are plugged.

They’re nice comfy chairs, I made a few from the same plans and they take some time to make, especially if you are milling from rough cut.. I didn’t have the patience to plug the holes though. .. nice work.

Thanks! They do take time having to mill everything and sand. Lots of sanding. Thank God for stationary belt sanders

Great looking pair of Adirondacks! They look sturdily built and comfy!

By the way, good on you for plugging the screw holes—much more attractive that way, and the fasteners last much longer!

They look really nice, I’m about to build a couple for the backyard. I’ve been trying to decide between the Rockler plans, Norm’s design, or Jake’s chair. About how long do you estimate it took for each chair?

Thanks! It’s hard to say exactly. It took me quite awhile because I take my time. And having to plane everything down, banddaw cuts, and sanding. Maybe 5 hours or so for each one. Maybe less
