I was selling my remaining stock of Adirondack chairs in my front yard, and I got several commissions for other things.
I may have to make more stuff to put in my front yard.
This is a love seat that will fit into an arbor on a deck. They brought the old one over, but it was in too bad a shape to fix.
This is made from untreated 5/4 decking and a couple pine 2×6’s. I would have gotten cedar 2×6’s but the selection was horrific. I went over the width by one inch, but that shouldn’t matter. I plan to hang this from eyelets which will be on 5/4 that attaches under the chair, so the whole chair will sit on those and swing. There will be no stress anywhere on this and it will last a life time if primed and painted properly. That is up to the client though.
Price $350 unfinished.
Cost about $90.
Time to make, about 2 days.
