This is my first project to add here.I made it during the summer but have only now figured out how to post pictures properly.
I made it out in the garden as the shed was too small to work in so the decent weather helped me work outside.
I got the plans for it off the internet.The timber is white deal (pine).
The most tedious part of the project was drilling and plugging all the screw holes.

My lesson learned from this project is to sand completely before putting pieces together as its very difficult to get into narrow spaces once assembed.

This is a nice looking piece of furniture. Adirondack furniture are timeless pieces that have not lost their appeal for generations. Did you put any type of finish on the love seat or simply let it age naturally?

so i got the plans for a rocker and modified it to be a seat.
The plans were free on the web and easy to follow.

Very Nice !
I make allot of Adirondack furniture but nothing quite like that, I think it may turn into a project for our back yard.

Again Nicely done
