Adirondack Chair Plans
I’d not come across Adirondack chair plans or for that matter the actual chairs until around a year ago, however I don't believe you will find more comfortable or as easy to construct garden furniture as you will find with the Adirondack Value Pack
You need not buy plans for the double chair with small dividing table single rocker chair and foot rest if you don’t want them all as they can be bought individually. The cost of the plans is inexpensive especially as you will be provided with so much information to build expertly.Each seperate design has it’s own detailed plan, along with full size patterns you can trace onto the lumber/wood for the shaped pieces.An instruction booklet describing the 'how to’s' in each stage of cutting and constructionMany photo’s of the assembly process, which give you a visual image, often more helpful than a two dimensional planA complete list and exact sizes of all the lumber and fixings/hardware requiredStill think you may encounter problems ? An assembly professional is at the end of a phone line to put you back on the right path. I’ve been unable to find another provider of Adirondack chair plans who include this after sale service.
Children’s Adirondack Chair Plans
This plan is based upon the adult’s chair design the only difference being (apart from being smaller) it isn’t adjustable. I have to agree with that difference because the fewer moving parts in a child’s chair the better.
More often than not, seating for our kids and in my case Grandkids is something we tend to ignore. They usually have to be propped up by cushions to enable their heads to appear above the table. Either that or are provided with a blanket on the ground, Little Miss Wynette. She was thinking of a different form of socialising.
You can find further details and product comments by clicking on this link to Rocking Adirondack Chair which by the way doesn’t rock. Maybe it was a metaphor used by an ageing hippie.
Now This Is A Rocker
I thought I’d better show you the difference between a hippie’s version of a rocker and my version, so here is mine and as you can see it has a curved base which allows the chair to rock.
As you can see by the price it isn’t too expensive to buy the plan and because of it’s simple but effective design the materials to build will not be outrageous.
I recommend at minimum Redwood which is a soft wood but good for painting, Cedar if it is not too expensive for your budget Oak as long as it has not been seasoned too long as it becomes very hard and Mahogany if you like a rich coloured wood suitable for varnishing or polyurethane finish
