This was my first attempt at an Adirondack chair. Was wanting to make it out of Cedar but thought I would make it out of PT first to make sure I knew what I was doing before I spent the money. Any ideas or criticisms will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Looks great dude. Did you use any sort of template for the top?

Thanks buddy! I did buy a template for this. Wanted to get an idea of how it is all put together. I think I can start customizing now. Was thinking of cutting out some drink or wine glass holders on the arms. I don’t think you can see it in these pictures but I bough a plug cutter and plugged all the screw holes. I really like how that turned out. I would also like to try doing some kind of inlay on the center back piece.

Have you been working on anything?

Thanks Greg. That is a good idea. One idea I had was if I was to make two, have an inlay of some sort of Sun on one and the Moon on the other. I think I need to lean how to inlay first. Are there any good tips, books, or sites that you would recommend?

Nice first try! I know the cedar will look different but the lighter wood vs. darker deck looks nice. Nice design too. I tried to find the plugs/screw holes. I could not. Impressive first one.

I also did not show this in a picture but the back is not a flat back. It is curved for a more comfortable feel on your back.
