Just finished my first set of adirondack chairs using the popular mechanics design I found online. I was inspired by someone else’s work on this website who used the same design and made a beautiful set of chairs. I’m happy with how they turned out, and as a beginner woodworker, I learned a lot along the way. As you’ll see in the pics, I don’t have a huge workshop. Since I don’t have a table saw or a jig saw, I made 95% of the cuts using a scroll saw and did the other 5% using a circular saw. Obviously not the ideal way to make consistent, straight-line cuts, but with patience and a lot of sanding it’s doable. I say all that to encourage anyone interested in getting in to woodworking but feels they lack the “necessary” tools and can’t afford to buy them. Anyway, enough rambling…enjoy the pics!
