Adirondack Chairs

by Patrick Harper - Blood, Sweat, and Sawdust

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.
