Made them over the winter from western cedar 5/4 deck boards and 2×4 lumber finished with two clear coats, next project two loungers . I find the band saw a must for any workshop so many uses.

very nice looking – I like them both natural, and painted like the one in back. I would like to replace my old cheap patio set with adirondack chairs. I think having folding ones can only be a plus. I wonder if there are plans for a folding table to go with them? (I guess I’d really only need to add cup holders – lol)

Great looking chairs and nice wood. Welcome to Lumberjocks. the problem I have with bandsaws is the
first one was not big enough, the second one was big enough for wood projects, but then it was not
big enough to rough cut wood from trees, and now my shop is too small to add a bigger one, so I want
a bigger shop! Oh well, as Robert Browning said,”Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, or
what’s a heaven for?” This site and woodworking are both addictive, so enjoy.

I cheated a bit the white chair in the back is from a store at the end of the summer $25, it was all screwed together so I just used it as a template.
