This was just a fun project to try. I’m a novice woodworker with limited tools. But this was a very simple and fun project. I learned several things (from mistakes), so I expect the next ones to come out even better.

They looks pretty comfortable! I am in the middle of building some Adirondack chairs, table and foot stools; I hope they turn out as nice as yours.

I know these things can all be varied according to the size of the person a chair is made for, but…..would you care to give us a few dimensions such as the front height where seat joins leg, the width between the arms (seat slat length) and possibly and angle of the cut to form the brace behind the back slats?
