I made these Adirondack chairs for my girlfriend’s father, a couple weeks ago. I figured if I stress him out, this could help him relax a bit.
I found the plans on popular mechanics, but I modified a few things. They are made of western red cedar and were delivered unfinished The arms went from 5/4×6 to 2×8 for holding cups, books or whatnot. The legs where bumped up to 2×6’s and carriage bolts where added in a few locations instead of the usual screws. They took longer to make then I anticipated, but, I will definitively make another set for myself sometime.
They are very comfortable.
