Adirondack Chair

There are many, many different patterns for Adirondack chairs, to say the least, but this one is a sentimental favorite. I recently refurbished this last surviving chair of six, built by my Grandfather in the 1930's, at our Muskoka, Ontario cottage.
The traditional curved top is shown on the right. The plans also include patterns for the other back designs, scalloped and picket fence , as shown above.
I can attest to it's comfort, as I sit in it every weekend morning, listening to the loons and sipping my coffee, just as my parents and Grandparents did before me.
The original Adirondack chairs had flat backs and seats, but eventually the rigid lines became more relaxed and comfortable. I have sat in many styles around cottage country, and still think this pattern is the most comfortable.
The tall, curved back cradles you, and the
19" (48.3cm) wide seat wide seat is contoured and curves under your knees. The low profile allows you to stretch out your legs. The 7 1/2" (19cm) wide arms of this chair, will hold a dinner plate or magazine, and comfortably rest your arms with coffee in hand.
I have extended the height of the original back, so that taller people can rest their head. I have also lowered, and added a
curved back seat slat , to match the curve of the back slats. This eliminates the "butt-bite", of the original design, caused by the space left between the back slats and the last seat slat.Plans also include pictures and dimensions of the taper sled I use on my table saw, to cut the back slats and back support pieces.
The chair is totally constructed of 3/4" (1.9cm) pine, but can be made with cedar fence boards. Some plans use 1" (2.54cm) to 1 1/2" (3.8cm) stock for the legs and arms, which I find too heavy looking.

Dimensions - 32 1/2"W x 37"D x 38"H (82.6cmW x 94cmD x 96.5cmH)

The downloadable instructions are in Adobe Acrobat . The templates will print clearly for transferring onto 1" x 1" graph paper you can make with a roll of brown packing paper. Directions for building a Taper Sled, are also included. These plans are in standard and metric dimensions.

Chair plans 01/05/2019
By Richard Meyer
I have make outdoor furniture for a very long time. The plans are very well thought out. The designer is just an email away if you have questions. Phil is also quick to get back to you with the answer. I like that the templates are full size and ready to make permanent wood templates. The instructions and clearly written. Phil has also made a great deal of patterns that compliment this chair.

Nice plans 04/21/2021
By Christopher Couch
The great thing about the internet is that distance is no barrier. I live in Wales UK, these plans were ordered & downloaded within the hour. Good quality plans and simple, straight forward with instructions & photos'. It's a shame I won't be buying any physical items from you, but it's simply not practical.
