I think that is fantastic. I built the standard adirondack chair and have always thought it needed a foot rest. Great design!!

I like that, a very new idea. Where did you get the plans?

Great idea! I’d really like more details on how you built the footrest. Mind sharing them?
I have some Adirondacks I built 20+ years ago that are extremely comfortable and I always check out the ones I see here or elsewhere. Usually there are just variations on the basic style of the chair, ability to fold, etc. This is the most outstanding improvememt in design I’ve seen!
THANKS for sharing!!

for the chair i copied one that we had in class and then for the foot rest i just made it as i went along, there are two runners on the side legs that the slats of the foot rest sit on and they are screwed to two more pieces and then legs and a dowel it was very simple.
