This is an Adirondack chair my 10 year old son and I made for my wife for Christmas. A very simple one made from some plans on the Lowe’s website. We left it unfinished so she could pick out the final look of the chair. It did make me appreciate any wood project with matching curves in it. It took a lot longer than I expected to cut out the bottom curved part and match up both sides (almost). I only have a real small bandsaw so I had to use a jigsaw to cut one out and then use it as a template for the other one. Of course they didn’t quite match still. In the end she seemed to like it, and I guess that is the important thing.

You could have used a router with a pattern cutting bit to make those parts “identical”...

Nice job, keep up the good work.

Be Careful!
