My friend Brad (Biker Barn dude) posted a skeleton head Adirondack chair to my Facebook timeline one day saying how cool it was and it planted a seed in my head to make one for his birthday.
Armed with my trusty Kreg jig, a BUNCH of leftover wood from the 4 board fence we just put up a summer ago, I set out to emulate what I had seen.
Since there were no plans I winged it. As I have become fond of doing. I built the seat first, made it oversized so it looked immense and then started on the back.
I used the Kreg jig and joined the fence boards together and then cut out the skull. Used a jigsaw for the eyes and nose and then sanded everything down. Then I used my router and did the teeth. I didn’t want fangs on this one, so left them straight down. Sanded everything again and gave it a coat of stain.
I wish I had more photos as I went through the process, and when I make another one I will take more.
I will make changes to the next one. I made the seat here a little too deep, and I would round off the arms and cut a skull in arms like the one I had seen on Facebook. Overall though it was a comfy seat. :)
