This is an Adirondack style chair which is assembled using no metal fasteners or glue. The one in the photo is constructed using MDF and cut on my CNC at about 2/3 scale which is the perfect size for a child. The last two pieces that go in look like little keys under the seat. Once those go in, that’s it. I might make a few this summer out of cedar.

That’s a very nice looking Adirondack—and no glue/fasteners, very interesting!

I would love to see your plans for this as well! What CNC are you using? I purchased a Shark some time ago. Fun but limited as to the size project you can build.

Toys, you can never have enough :-)

I have a Gerber Saber 408 that I bought used. It has a bed that can cut a 48”x96” sheet with no problem. It won’t fit in my shop so it lives in the garage. That is the bad part about having a machine that size.

I use SketchUp and AutoCAD. SketchUp is to draw the model, getting everything to fit perfectly, then I lay all the parts flat, export the file to AutoCAD to complete the cut file. SketchUp doesn’t do curves (just a bunch of small straight lines on a curved path) so I use AutoCAD to swap the lines to curves and add relief cuts into the corners to compensate for the radius of the router bit. Note that the free version of SketchUp does not export vector files (.DXF or .DWG files) only the pro version does that. The Free version does everything else though.
