Advanced Adirondack Chair

This lively interpretation of the classic Adirondack chair emphasizes curves and comfort. Both the seat and the back are shaped to welcome you as you nestle in for a little reading or relaxation. Its high back slats have gently radiused ends, and the generously proportioned arms provide ample room for resting a snack or a cool drink. Building this piece of furniture takes a little time and skill, but the results are worth the effort.
