Taking to give this a try this weekend! This will be my first wood working project.
This part is time-consuming and messy considering how many pieces there really are for making Adirondack chairs. I ended up covered in sawdust, or as my 5-year-old calls is “wood fuzz”. .
I don’t know about you but I’ll be spending a good chunk of the summer in our backyard. I can just see myself with a (sometimes adult) beverage in hand watching my kiddos play. It is like a dream…until I realized that there’s no great place to sit! Ya see, we’ve had these disgusting plastic Adirondack chairs for years that leave a white chalky mark on your bee-hind.

Even better, they don’t leave any details out and include cut sheets and parts lists, so you’ll know going in, exactly what you’ll need to buy before you start.

Hi! I live in Bay Area, CA. I’m looking for a couple of these chairs and they are sold out online.
You are really going to enjoy using these this summer. We made templates of our Adirondack chair pattern pieces out of luan. Now when we make new ones, it’s easy to trace where to cut on the wood. Our first set, made years and years ago, finally rotted to the point that we had to throw them out, so making a new set is on our spring “to-do” list.
As with all furniture, Adirondack chairs do have a weight capacity on them. This capacity will vary depending on which model you go with. However, finding out that information can be harder then you think, with not every company being upfront about it. For me, this usually means they have an industry-standard weight capacity of between 200 and 220 pounds.
Plastic, you get a more modern feel but may look cheap. It’s easy to maintain, and the cost is more affordable.
Blue is always a safe choice, because it is the most liked color. Some shades of blue, such as turquoise, promote cleanliness and calmness. Blue Adirondack chairs are also great poolside or in nautical-themed designs. Combining the stability of blue and the energy of red, purple gives off a luxurious effect.
