My First Attempt at a Adirondack double Chair and table combo with adjustable backs. I flipped the long frame legs over to set the chair at a normal sitting height. I cant stand to sit in a chair thats a lowrider. The second picture is of the material after I milled and shaped. The third picture is the beginning frame work. Fourt picture is of the fan seat backs. Fifth Picture is of the seat backs installed on the frame. Sixth picture is of the completed chair with it in its tilted mode. Of course the first picture is of my shop dog Roscoe staking his claim on the work just completed. I haven’t put a finish on it yet as my wife and I are contemplating staining it or clear coat. Thanks for looking.
