The plans for this chair came from a popular woodworking magazine, I modified them a bit. They are made from aromatic cedar and the plugs are ebonized walnut. I was a little afraid of the ebonizing proccess, but it was a peice of cake, this was also my first experience with a spray finish, which I really enjoyed. I borrowed the spray gun from a buddy who picked it up at harbor freight, the gun worked pretty good exept that it kept clogging, any way I plan on making a few more of these now that I have the templates all made and would like to make a two seater with a table in between, possibly some of those ottomen as well.

Roscoe, That is really beautiful, beautiful. Excellent wood choice & very nicely done!
I didn’t know if G&G style extends to adirondack.

I don’t know if G&G really describes it, but it certainly has some details of it, cloud lifts, square plugs, and that’s how the magazine described it.

I’ll bet it smells as good as it looks. Very nice job in the best G and G tradition.

Very nice, that’s a step up from the traditional Adirondack.

Very unusual take on an old favourite… You have done this justice.

Boy Roscoe that is really great – what a combination. You have really brought out both styles. Would you mind sharing in which issue of Popular Woodworking you found this!?
Thanks,
Greg

That’s very cool! I never thought about G&G’ing something from another genre. Is that a much-needed Coors Light I see gracing the arm rest after a long day?

Nice twist on a classic. How did you ebonize the walnut?

Captainskully-that is a silver bullet in my other half’s hand

Chelios-pour vinegar in a container, drop in a steel wool pad, let sit about a week with a cover on it, then just brush it on or dip it in and in a few minutes it will turn black, you can actually watch it turn-it’s very cool to see.

GBS-tomorrow I will get back to you on the issue it was in.

Thanks for all the great comments

I like the “variation” you made of this classic chair. The only problem I see is “Us Old Folks” ,once in these, can’t get out! A young person’s chair!

Nice looking chair Rasta, I like all the detailing work. You may regret not building it faster because it looks very comfortable for a beer and a snooze…lol….BC
