Adirondack Chair (Plan No. 55)
A Coast-to-Coast Classic!
As American as jazz, baseball and apple pie, Adirondack chairs are a perennial favorite from California to Maine (and all points in-between). Named for the region in upstate New York where it originated, this classic design is characterized by distinctive good looks, built-in comfort and rock-solid durability.
And like any classic, Adirondack chairs tend to be pretty expensive. If you're a do-it-yourselfer, however, there's no reason to pay high prices–the design is simple (and inexpensive) to make.
Built from standard pine and fir lumber, the chair pictured here is requires no special tools and is easy enough for most woodworkers. To build, simply trace the pieces onto wood from full-size patterns, cut everything out and sand. Next, assemble the parts with brass or plated carriage bolts and wood screws. Once the chair is assembled, paint, stain, whitewash or apply your finish of choice.
The chair measures about 36 inches tall by 24 inches wide by 36 inches deep.
The Adirondack Chair plan (No. 55) includes full-size traceable patterns, step-by-step instructions, detailed diagrams, a shopping list and cutting schedule and a toll-free help line for project questions.
