I searched the projects but nothing came up. Must have not been tagged.
I believe I’ve see in here adjustable back Adirondack chairs.

Look at the adjustment design on some Morris chairs. Same thing. Extend the arms behind the backrest and put an adjustable crossbar across the back.

I’ve seen them. I build them myself and was wondering if I could make an adjustable back, but the amount of extra wood seems to make the chair even more bulky. I’m trying to use the bare minimum wood as it is. The entire design has to change to make the back adjustable. I settled for adding a bit more leg room, taming the hump under the knees, and reclining it just a bit. Once you sit in one of my chairs, you’re happy just the way it is.

I have been searching the internet. I see some slick designs out there. There are even some that have pull-out feet rests.

Have your say...
