I built these chairs and table a while back but decided to go ahead and post them. The chair design was from our buddy Norm A. My dad gave a book of his years ago. I decided to look through it a while back and my wife went nuts over the adirondak chair. I scanned and enlarged the scale drawings and made templates.
The chair on the right was made first. I made it from cedar I found at Home Depot. The chair came out nice but I wasn’t too happy with how sturdy it felt. The light cedar just didn’t seem right, so that one is my wifes. From there I decide to make another from some cypress I found at a local lumber yard. It’s made from full 1” and 2” stock. Same design, just thicker and sturdier. I gave each one a coat of Australian Timber sealer for a little color.
The table was made using a Woodsmith Shop design. I altered it a bit because I wanted to make use of the chair leftovers and didn’t have enough to make it exactly by the plan. It came out nice using both cedar and cypress. I gave it the same finish.
