An DIY Adirondack chair, Nice and light, easy to build, inexpensive, and looks nice!

The purchase is for a downloadable file with 16 pages of plan drawings, step-by step instructions and pictures. The measurements are in both standard and metric.

This is the most lightweight Adirondack chair that I have made and is also probably the easiest to build. The back-rest is not curved like most of the traditional Adirondack chairs but that does not noticeably take any of the comfort aspect away however it does make for an ‘easier to build’ chair.

6 pieces of 3/4″ x 5-1/2″ (19 x 140 mm) wood that are 6ft (1800mm) long is all the wood you will need to make the chair.

There is a drawing showing you how to cut all the pieces out of the six boards.
The wood is a common stock size so you should not have too much trouble obtaining it.

You will also need

I used a nail gun and thin finishing nails 1-3/4″ (44mm) as I relied heavily on glue and more or less used the nails to hold things until the glue set.
I did use 3/8″ (10mm) carriage bolts to hold the legs to the sides. 1 at each meeting.
If you want to use glue and screws, you will need the following:

50 of 1-3/4″ (45mm) exterior wood screws.
12 of 1-1/4″ (33mm) exterior wood screws.
4 of 3/8″ (10mm) x 2″ 50mm long galvanized carriage (coach) bolts.
Exterior type wood glue
