Sample text

As I was writing this, curiosity got the best of me and I decided to do a little research into its history—I’m betting that you’ll find it just as interesting as I did. Excerpted from Wikipedia: The precursor to today’s Adirondack chair was designed by Thomas Lee in 1903. He was on vacation in Westport, New York, in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains, and needed outdoor chairs for his summer home. He tested the first designs on his family. The original Adirondack chair was made with eleven pieces of wood, cut from a single board.

I also added an identical one to the back of the bench. Step 11 The stretchers are positioned so that they’re top edge is essentially flush with the seat slat closest to them. I secured the stretchers with long screws. Step 12 Here’s a nice picture of the overall progress. Step 13 The arms could be shaped any way you like (taking a page from Adirondack chair design, perhaps), but I kept it simple here. They do need to be notched at the back edge so that they can fit around the rear leg. Step 14 I used a jig saw to cut the notch.

Add radii to the front corners of the arms for comfort. Once I had cut out one, I used it as a pattern for the other arm. Step 14 By sitting in the chair and holding out my arms at a comfortable height, I was able to establish an ergonomically appealing height for the front legs. I cut them to this height and attached the arms and rear legs with screws. Step 15 Laying out the slats for the back takes a bit of experimentation. How many slats should you use? How wide should they be? How do you establish the spacing?
