Tha chairs look great. What wood and finish did you use? For some strange reason I keep thinking about Goldilocks and the Three Bears…

Dave, I just wrote this, then I read you comment above – It was the first thing that sprang into my mind as well – Which is the next fable you are going to depict?

As they are Adirondack chairs try Mount Marcy, Mount Snowy and Blue Ridge
(Tallest, middle and smallest of Adirondack Mountains)
However, my first thought, too, was Papa Bear, Mama Bear and Baby Bear
But they all look just right.

Nice chairs bro let’s make a few for x-mas gifts when I come over there. No time for primer and paint maybe cypress or cedar and a little boat juice (watco oil)

Good idea. Now that I’ve made a bakers dozen we’ll knock them out.

I’ll answer cckeele’s question here now. The blue one was the first I made using The New Yankee Workshop plan and using Cypress I let them grey out for about 5 years. Then she said let’s paint them a color. I first water blasted the dirt and sanded a little and applied an exterior water based primer. Then, using a left over sash and trim water based paint I found at the paint store. The smaller chairs are Cypress later primed with a water based primer. The new owners then painted them white. The picture show them unfinished.
