I’ve been thinking about building an adirondack chair for some time and having seen one of these made by deeman (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/65447) I decided that was the type I’d build.
As hardwood was out of my price range it had to be out of pine (not ideal for oudoor furniture, I know). The finish was one coat 1/3 tung oil 1/3 outdoor varnish 1/3 mineral spirits followed by 4 coats of a 50/50 mix of tung oil and outdoor varnish. There are also rubber feet fitted to keep the endgrain off the ground.
