My sister Jennifer is a big fan of adirondack style chairs. I thought building one would be good learning experience and would make a great gift. I made the chair from treated pine fence posts that have been sitting around for several years. I laminated boards together to make 1 3/4” stock and went form there. I finished the chair with spar urethane. Thanks for looking.

Good job IC. The chair looks great and I bet it was appreciated very much.

Now you can get started on the rest of the set (more chairs, ottomans, tables).
