Building an Adirondack Chair for Your Yard

By: Danny Lipford

An Adirondack chair is a great addition to any outdoor area. We built our Adirondack chair from cedar following a set of plans available at Woodcraft. The plans were very detailed, featuring how-to photos, full size patterns, and step-by-step instructions.

Once the pieces have been cut to size and shape using a circular saw and jig or bandsaw, the chair was assembled using galvanized carriage bolts and screws. Building the chair yourself allows you to customize the design to fit your needs. Watch this video to find out more.
