I’ve built both Norm Abrams and Jakes Chair in previous projects and like both chairs as both have their own very unique qualities but have for some time thought about combining the two designs into one with a few of my own modifications added in. The seat width is 24” instead of the 27” Jakes Chair and 22” NYWS Chair. The back is kind of my own creation with 5 4” slats and 2 1.5” slats with an aggressive 16” arc on top and slices taken out of the bottom sides for some style points. I’m going to make another minor change to this design this weekend on some new chairs I’m building with the back raising forward 1” to lesson the angle a bit as I believe it’s a bit much for some folks, although it’s extremely comfortable to sit in just like it is. The chair is made with rough cut cypress lumber from Axley Brothers in Pinellas County Florida. I look forward to your comments questions and concerns on my latest adirondack chair build.
