Great looking chair, the fan shape on back rest is the best I have seen. Did this evolve from the standard plans or were the plans as the chair you built, if they were the standard plans can you let me know where to buy, thanks?

I got the plans from my Dad 20 years ago and reworked them & came up with this design,we have been selling them in the Portland,OR. area for the last 15 years. This chair has a Sun Wax finish over Red Dye, usually make them out of CVG Old Growth Cedar that I remill. Wanted to do something different for a upcoming show
Have more stuff I will post soon.

That is one of the nicer looking Adirondacks that I’ve seen. Did you use Alaska yellow cedar? That is an awesome wood.
