Here is my attempt at making an Adirondack chair.
I’ve made a couple of big rigid chairs but wanted to make a couple of folding chairs for the garden and to take out and about.
I used the paper plans from Veritas and found the instructions easy enough to follow, I stuck them on plywood to make more later.
I love the design of the Adirondack as it is really comfortable and fits someone like me of larger build.
On the second build I changed the under arm hinge bracket and used coach bolts which looked a lot neater than the hex heads. Also I finished the arms and front legs with reclaimed pallet wood.
I think it gives it a “Shabby Chic” look which is all the rage in the UK at the moment.
