hi all,
this is my second adirondack chair that i have made out of pallet wood, it came out much better, due to a slightly different design, you can see the stack of pallet wood in two of the pictures.
the project took about 4 days which involved a hell of a lot of sanding and filling, but beggers cant be choosers and it was about my budget £0 which is always a good thing. i printed the plans i got online to full size and then made proper plywood templates of the parts so i can use gain and again. this chair is for my sister who liked the first one i did.
its all done apart from the finishing, which i think my sister would prefer to be painted a nice green colour.

hope you like it and can see what can be done with some pallet wood with a bit of work.

Looks really good. I work with pallet wood a lot too. I appreciate the time you took to really bring the wood grain out and hide the marring that pallets go through. Good work.

I want to go where you go for your pallets. Great job on the chair.
