Things have been quiet here for the last few weeks. I fully intend to update this blog on a more regular basis, but I’ve been working on the design of my Adirondack chairs. They are heavily influenced by the design Norm Abrams used in the New Yankee Workshop. I have made a few changes to the design, and plan on making a few more on subsequent chairs. While they don’t rely on any traditional joinery, they were still a lot of fun to make. This pair was made entirely from Cypress, using stainless steel hardware. All of the screws will be hidden by wooden plugs. Overall, I am very pleased with the design. The chairs look great and are very comfortable. It’s too bad the weather’s starting to get cold.
