Finally completed our front porch Adirondack, Grandpa/Grandma, porch set. I, was and still, amazed at the amount of wood there is in the making of an Adirondack! I used cedar and had to cull through many layers of lumber to get enough cedar to make this set match. The finish is a penetrating oil I purchased at our local WoodSmith Store, it was a little spendy but worth every bit as it allowed the natural colors and grain to pop out.
I have two more chairs and table up in the shop waiting to finish. These next ones are also cedar but the grain and color are much much different. I can’t wait to get them completed and on the porch.
Thanks for looking at my project. Lumber Jocks is the best, so glad it is available to us!
I just added 5 more pictures of the Adirondack chairs I finished. They are a little different in color then the first two chairs. They are the most comfortable chairs I have made to date, now to find a buyer so I can buy more wood and make more chairs!!
