Here is the end result of the adirondeck chair I built from modified plans from Popular Mechanics. I have always wanted one but never liked the ones in the store. Here is my concept, I love hunting as much as I do woodworking and I wanted to put an inlay on the chair, Rockler had the right piece, The Mallard. So I modified the plans I downloaded and designed the back to simulate the ducks tail feathers. I cut all the slats identical angles and then used the cut-offs to fill in the cracks still allowing room for the wood to breath and expand. The chair is made from solid Ash and treated with 3 coats of tung oil, the chair is curing and then wipe-on poly is next. This chair is definately made for a patio because although the wood species is very strong, the rot resistance factor is low on the chart. A small table is in the works right now for the chair and I also built a serving board from the scraps in the third photo.
