I built sixteen Adirondack chairs for some family members,
In order to make the job easier I built several jigs to make all the cuts.
They saved me a lot of time, assured that all the pieces were the same, and made assembly a snap.
Most of the lumber used where 5/4 by 6 cedar decking boards.

Those are fantastic!!! Are there plans you worked off that I could use to make a few for my own family?

I see a hole lot of nothing getting done on a hot summer day with 16 people sitting in the back yard. Nice looking chairs.
