I made chairs for the kids using Norm’s plans reduced down to their size (my daughter is 5’ 2”). Since they were going to be inside I used 3/4” Baltic Birch for the frame, and 1/2” for the slats. At first I was worried that the 1/2” would be too thin for the back slats, but I actually like the way they give a little when you sit in them. Thanks for taking a look, George

Great looking Adirondack—I’m sure the kids love ‘em!

Hey tony77. The plans are the standard Norm Abrams. They can be found here: Norm's Plans

Here is the video: Norm's video

My daughter is 10% shorter than me so I just reduced the print out by 10%.
