This is the second Adirondack chair I’ve made using the Veritas plans (second chair ever made) Thankfully it’s made out of pine because I still made several mistakes and had to recut some pieces, or use wood filler.
It is a present for one of my best friend’s birthday. (She requested bright yellow. It’s certainly bright!)
In the third picture, you can see that the seat slats sit below the outer chair support on top of the fish shaped support piece. This is by far the most difficult part for me. Also the seat slats toward the front of the chair are cut on a variety of angles, none of which match the angles in the plan.
If I make a third chair, I may try different plans.
What I learned the second time around:
-I was glad to have the jig I made for the first chair for cutting the tapered back slats, but I should have written down the exact blade distance ON the jig.
-the table mounted router saved me a lot of time.
-painting is much easier after a good coat of primer/sealer (duh)
-If there is a third chair, it will be for ME!
-- No, I don't want to buy the pink hammer.
