These take a little longer to build than an adirondeck chair, but they are very comfortable.

Very good looking chairs, how does the chain work, any better than the bars?

Thanks for the comments. My wife’s uncle had made a few chairs like this. I made a copy of his, but made a few changes. I like the chain because it is cheap and easy to attach, and it still feels like your gliding more than swinging.
