Built a Bentback Androndike Chair. It’s made of mahogany wood. The arms were bent by resawing the wood a 1/4” thick then laminating the pieces back together using a wooden MDF mold.

Very Cool. Where did you find the plans? I have built and seen many adirondack variations, but never this one … I like it.

Beautiful chair, although classifying it as an Androndike is a stretch since the back slats are horizontal instead of vertical…

Nice design and nicely executed. Would like to see larger photos…

Keep up the good work.

Nice chair, what glue did you use on the bent lamination? If you look close you can see the taunton press copyright at the bottom of the plans.
