Here are 4 Adirondack chairs we made for a customer, they were stained with japanese maple then with jacobean then assembled.

These are 1’’ Eastern white cedar cut by my brother who runs a band mill and a logging operation locally, it’s nice to drive next door pick up a lift of cedar with a bobcat and drive it to the shop door!

That my dog Ark! He’s a mastiff with a nice book match brindle…..lol

The last picture is at the customers place where the chairs will enjoy many years of sitting

I typically just use the gold deck screws but decided to use dark green screws but from my experience screws that have the colour added suck! You know why because that little bit of colour makes it so a bit does not fit the screws very well….. just something I hate but really not that big a deal just have to pay more attention when putting in the screws.

This is a nice set. Do you have templates or how do you go about designing these? They all look perfectly matched.

Very nice work. Do they have a lower profile than traditional Adirondack chairs? They look good!

Yes I have templates, A long time ago I got them from my grade 9 high school shop class

Yes I don’t know if there lower then a traditional Adirondack but it definitely sits lower and more comfortable then a muskoka chair from my experience anyways.

I don’t know about perfectly matched but there close…...lol

Very nice.

There are a lot of variations in adirondack chair design. I particularly like this design. It looks like it sits a little lower than most and the arms are particularly wide.

Regarding screws – I always use screws with a square drive because they are much less likely to slip and, for me, color does not matter because every screw is either underneath the chair or hidden under a plug.
