I like the Adirondack chairs except for the “laid back” position making getting out of one a bit of a chore. This leg keeps your butt up some. The rounded seat and back also add to the comfort. I cut drink holders into the right arms and turned a tapered base with a drain for water. I built a truss style table to support our umbrella that can hold a lot. Of course our granddaughter needed a chair so I made a 2/3 size for her. Then it was Pa Pa, I need a table! So now we have 2 complete sets. !00% Red Cedar construction. Coated deck screws, oil finish. Should last 3 lifetimes.

Great looking furniture and your granddaughter is almost as cute as my great granddaughter. You have to
keep a close ear on what they say, I did not and now one of my grandson’s has a 40 foot waterslide in
my son’s backyard, but like you say a child’s smile is payment enough. I am going to have to learn how
to operate a digital camera.

Very nice! I wonder how long the nice smell will last. I think cedar would be a great choice for outdoor furniture.
