Adirondack Chair Project
« on: August 10, 2018, 10:23:02 AM »
Just completed this Adirondack Chair project using 4/4 black cherry off my farm and milled on my Lumbermate 2000.  I thought it turned out well for my woodworking skill level which is beginner or lower if there is such a thing.   :D

Here's a couple of photos.

Very nice!  Are you going to finish with a clear finish?  Will it live on a covered porch or will it be yard furniture?  I'd hate to see such nice wood baking out in the sun!

It will be on a covered porch.  I plan on finishing with clear Australian Timber Oil.

Very nice job.  Always extra special when you took it from tree to furniture.  Im pondering my next project.

Very nice and looks relaxing!  Did you build with green wood or did it dry for a bit?

I like that design and have built quite a few of them just like it out of Cyprus, Cedar, and White Oak. Norm came up with a good chair.

  Need to re-design the chair so the cat does not like it so much or you will never get to use it. :D

   Well done.

The lumber was barn dried for about a year.

I plan on building some more out of tulip poplar, cedar, white oak, and maybe walnut.

They are quite comfortable and very durable if built from a rot resistant wood. The first ones I built last 18 years out in the weather with no protective coating. The ones I built from white oak, only a few years. The cedar ones are still in use after about 4 years.
