I’ve had these 2 Adirondack chairs in my back yard for over 15 years. They are the most comfortable ones I’ve ever sat in. The place where I bought them has long scene gone out of buissness. I was thinking about disassembling one and use the pieces for a patten. So my question is, does this sound a good Idea?

Adirondack chairs are easy and come in a wide variety of shapes and styles. From brief research when I was making mine, I believe the chairs came from the idea of making quick, simple, but comfy chairs out of local materials around the mountains. So I would suggest you just extrapolate from the chairs or down-load similar plans and adjust them to suit yourself, rather than take them apart. :)

All of the Adirondak chairs I have sat in were miserably uncomfortable.Thats why I started making the chairs I posted recently. If you have comfortable Adr. chairs I would copy their design rather than trying other plans.I dont see a problem taking them apart but I imagine you can duplicate them without having to do this. Post your comfortable Adr. chairs and lets see what is different about their design that makes them comfortable.

I’d love to see your chairs. By careful inspection and analys you should be able to duplicate them without having to disassemble them.

Good Luck!

Be Careful!
