I just made this chair the other day. It’s just made of Pine, mainly cause i didn’t want to spend too much putting it together, and hey, for twenty bucks i think it came out pretty good. It’s pretty sturdy as well. It took about six boards of 6’x6”x3/4 pine. Haven’t put a finish on it yet, i was thinking of keeping it wood, and just putting an outdoor finish on it. Any comments are appreciated!

I like it too and now is the time to be gettin’ things like that out in the yard/patio. Good job. I would at least weather-proof it.

Nice looking chair. I like that style.
Several years ago some friends of mine asked me to build a couple of Norm’s chairs. I did my 1st one out of pine for the practice and to work out any bugs. All I did was flood it with danish oil and I think I’ve done that again a couple of times since. It’s been out in the weather all these years and it’s still a solid chair. It’s always sat on concete or wood decking and never had more than minimal ground contact.
That chair looks like it’ll last just as long.

That’s a great looking chair. I happen to like pine, it very inexpensive, soft so it machines very easily, and takes stain like a sponge. As long as you stain/seal the chair it will last a long time, or even letting the weather age it, you will still get many years of use from it.

Very nice chair. That’s my next project. My sister wants a couple Adirondack chairs. I think I might make leg rests as well.
