I’ve long been wanting to build a Andirondack chair, and finally I got around to do it. I added a personal touch to it by engraving my family name in the front. This way, there will be no thieves around our property to steel it I hope. (Yes, we are bothered by a lot of robbers around) I have bought a new table saw (Axminster) and this is just the sh…. and also a new bandsaw (also Axminster) so now my shop is finally getting done. I already started a build for a second chair to my wife, and I will try to decrease the plans I made as to make a chair for our baby coming in July. Hope you enjoy the pictures! Have a good one everybody, greetings from the cold and snowy Norway.

Hank, that is a fine looking chair. Thanks for posting a photo of the parts, it is a reminder of the work involved in making a chair like this.

Nice! I can’t wait to build some folding chairs for our new house. I currently have a set of the beach chairs. Did you get your plans from Phil @ Plansinwood.com? He’s a great guy and a fellow LJ.

It’s also very cool to see that you cut them out with your XC1000! I’m MidnightMaker on the forum. Did you convert PDF’s to vectors? Did you post anything over there? If so, I haven’t seen it yet.

Thank you for the positive comments. No I did not get my plans fro Phil, but I will definitely check them out. I am not sure which forum you are aiming at (inventables?) but I converted PDF to SVG and carved it out that way.

Thank you, The greenish ting is the color of impregnation. I bought the material from our local lumber stor (which is poorly equipped with anything but spruce) since I am using these chairs in rather bad weather conditions (I live on the east cost) the material has to be impregnated. I will later paint/stain them dark brown.
