Adirondack Chair made from Pressure treated southern pine. Based on plans from the Lowes Creative Ideas website. Joinery is butt joints and pocket screws. It has since been painted ‘New England Cream’. My first project!

Thanks guys. I have since made another and they are gracing the patio around a fire pit. If you’re thinking of doing one, definitely consider doing a ‘waterfall front’ instead of the curved seat extending from the front supports. This current model is comfy for me (6’2”) but is very uncomfortable for my wife (5’6”) and her feet don’t touch the ground. The flat front might make it a bit more user friendly. Also, if like me you don’t have a paint sprayer do at least one coat before assembly. This beast has a million nooks and crannies that are a pain to get with a brush.
