I tried making an adirondack chair about a year ago. It was a dismal failure, but I vowed I'd try again.
I found some plans for a much sturdier chair online and set about making it in the new shedshop.
This one is made from basic 2x4s and 1x4s and doesn't require special tools or anything. Here it is, sans armrests:
It is very sturdy and taking my time with the cuts has really paid off. I decided to use the router on some of the rough edges.
Next up: prime and paint...
