Sanding and painting to come. Second chair completed in two days. Much less time when you can copy one rather than do it from scratch. Extra paint on all the feet all ready. Sprayed them the same pale yellow color as the feet. Used (not shown) treated 2×4s as runners to keep the feet off the wet, warm Florida ground.

My first Adirondack was from the Popular Mechanics plan. I still have plans to make it lay back a bit, it’s too upright for comfort. I modified the design by adding 2×4 front legs and 2×6 arms, makes the whole thing more solid. From now on I think I’ll sink the back down under the seat so I can hide the screws. The uppers can be done from the back for a screwless design.

Here is a tip I learned about making those back slats easier to assemble. When you cut the top brace, keep the piece you cut off, (you may need to cut it out of a 1×6 from now on).
Lay the chair on it’s back propped up to be level. Lay the back slats in place and take that piece you cut and put that on the top and clamp it to the upper back brace with the back slats in the middle. Now you can arrange them evenly and hold them down to attach them.

RussellAP: Good idea on the top brace left over and clamping the back slats. I used a full length spacer which allowed me to clamp it that way, but I like your idea.
