Interesting design, We all know about the paint situation I am working on a cabinet that the customer requested painted A lot more work :)

Nice and functional. I like to suggest to complete the circle of the back, at least the top part. It will look even nicer.

Like the design real well…. and the paint. If I copy it, I think I might try to finish the top with a full circle look and perhaps tilt the back backward a degree or two more… It is really hard to guess. Also I’d use less dip in the seat… at least that is what my wife said to say when she saw it. On the other hand, if it fits you well, don’t tamper with it.

well done.

Adirondack chairs are like snowflakes, No two are alike. I’ve made a few A chairs over the years and tried to improve on them each time. I like your design, but I especially like the color. The most important thing is that you (and your wife) are happy with it. Put it in the shade, get a cold drink , and enjoy the summer. Thanks for sharing.
