Everybody should make an Adirondack chair at least once. I made this one for my great niece. I don’t get to see her often, so I thought this would remind her of me a little as she grows up so fast!

Nice chair, I make one real close to this design they are so comfortable I have been using it in the living room for the last ten years. I am sure your niece will love it and if they are like mine they will fighting over who gets to sit in it. Great job

Nice work! Just want to ease into with a nice brew in hand, on a lazy warm day, in the shade of a nice tree. I’m sure your niece will cherish it for a long time. Thanks for sharing. Play / be safe.

That is a nice looking chair. Although, I’m not sure what I’m most impressed with: the chair or your organized shop.

I rather like that one with less slats in back! Where did you buy plans?

Thanks.. I actually saw a picture and extrapolated the design. Also it is 3/4 size for my niece who is only 4. I did search on-line for some plans, but I found so many styles and designs I figured I could just design my own.
