Summer is a great time to make a fun project like this comfortable, relaxing Adirondack chair. Follow the tutorial and then click on the link below to get detailed DIY plans!
Start by cutting all the pieces for the seat and back.
Use a glass to measure the rounded edges – or anything that has a 3.5″ diameter!
Use a jigsaw to cut, and then sand the edges smooth. Next screw the braes onto the sides.
Screw the back slats onto the lower brace, and then screw the back brace across.
Space the seat boards 1/2″ apart, using a piece of plywood for a spacer.
Attach the braces to the front legs, using a square to make sure everything is . . . well, square.
Big wide arms are one of the defining features of the Adirondack style. I use 6″ boards for my chair. Attach the arms to the braces.
Now you’re ready to put the two parts of the chair together – if you can, grab a friend for this part.
Use sturdy bolts and lock washers to attach the two parts of the chair.
Paint or stain as desired.
Enjoy your project!
