Just thought I would share with you a picture of my adirondack chair. I have made many of these and sold them for a good sum. Hope you enjoy it.

I love this style of chair. They are comfortable and the wide arms make a side table unnecessary for a place to set a nice cold drink. In fact, the ones I was looking at last week had extra wide arms and cutouts for drink holders. I was very tempted to buy them but they are too large for my tiny little sitting area.

Yours look like they are very well built and sturdy and the finish looks great too.

Norma --- Excellent and very comfy looking design. All the right curves in all the right places. What else do you make besides chairs?

Beautiful work! Looks like they would last a life time too. How long does it take you to make one? What kind of wood do you use? My husband dabbles in wood working and is always asking me what I want made next. Hmmmmm maybe I found his next project.

Hi everyone,
Thank you sooooooo much for the nice comments. I love woodworking and gardening. I am now in the midst of building a shed for my tractor. Already made one for my riding lawn mower. And it usually takes a few days to build the adirondak chair. I have made quite a few of them. In case some of you are interested I bought the pattern off of ebay. I think it was around $10.00 and it also includes a pattern of the foot stool and a table. So it wasn't to to hard to make. Just a little time consuming. I also build benches, footstools, garden benches and I have made a couple of potting tables. So thanks again for the nice comments. I bought a new computer and as soon as I get my pictures downloaded I will post them on here.
