A couple of very comfortable chairs I built over the past few weekends as it was too hot to play golf and the shop has A/C. :) Built from plans for in FWW and I made a few changes, most notable the the last seat slat that’s cut in the shape of the curved back. I used polar with two coats of Kilz primer and Behr Exterior Semi-Gloss white, pluged the screws. My wife came out to sit in the chairs before they were painted and didn’t want to get up, so I had some “motivation” to get them done. Thanks for looking.

Thanks Ken. I have since built a couple more and sold them to a woman in Cincinnati. Works out I deliver them on my way up to visit the kids, otherwise, it wouldn’t be worth the drive. I was playing golf last week and one of the guys in the group requested a price for 2, so it looks like I have a couple more to do.

Looking at all your projects..WOW.. you have made a nice collection. Some of those things I see are what I would like to make some time. What plans did you use for these chairs. I have really been wanting to make some of those too.

Hi Tom, thanks for the kind words. I started out using plans from Fine Woodworking written by Tom Begnal . I can’t remember the issue but if you search FWW website with the key words, adirondack chairs Begnal, plans, you should find the issue. I made the first pair to plan, then made some minor changes on the next pair. Good luck and let me know if you have ny questions.
