Here is my cypress Adirondack chair with hide away leg rest. When not in use the leg rest slides beneath the seat on runners. The chair is finished with spar varnish.

Very nice!
I have been wanting to build one just like yours, but I am having trouble finding plans.

Nice build, on a scale of 1-5 what would you say the skill level to build is?

Thanks everyone! There really isn’t anything too difficult with building this kind of chair. As long as you know some of the basics and have a good set of plans, an adirondack chair is a good project for a beginner. So, I would say a 2.

Really nice chair, love the foot/leg rest. Hope to build similar for Summer. Unfamiliar with your terminology but I take it spar varnish is an exterior grade similar to Yacht Varnish.?? Good job.

Very nice chair. I say a new yankee workshop episode where norm made one of these. Cypress is expensive but well worth the investment.

It’s a nice clean chair and looks very comfortable.

Thanks JS,
I found the plans at the wood store.net ($7.95) for the PDF version
If it ever warms up here I may have to build 1 or 2
