Here’s an Adirondack chair I’ve been building between other projects over winter. Its made from all cedar. I was selective and cut around all knotholes. The pieces are secured with glue and stainless steel fasteners. To top it off it has (4) coats of spar varnish applied with my HVLP. This is a NYWS plan. In the second photo the new chair joins my old chair made from AC2 lumber. I much prefer the cedar. It’s now ready for my wife to read beside the garden.

I used to sell these chairs in a kit form the public snatched these up as quick as I could make them mine were california redwood but the cedar looks fine too I am glad you got the results you wanted now next time you do these make a few patterns and cut them out 10-20 at a time it is how I paid for lots of my tools and I love norms design the best i like the square front and the side legs look great. You did a great job
