These Adirondack chairs get high marks from customers across the board — and you can feel good about purchasing them too, as they’re made from 95% recycled materials. Sold in a set of four, the chairs have a high contoured back and a gently sloping seat.
These chairs are colored in their manufacturing process and do not need to be painted. Cleaning is similar to a wooden chair — if you have a pressure washer, you’re golden. Hose them down, let them dry, and you’re all set. .
How high do you want the seat to be from the ground and at what angle? The higher the seat the more material you’ll need. The lower it is the harder it is to get out of.
First, butt the front end of the stringers squarely into the back of the apron on each side. Screw through the face of the apron to fasten them together.
Expensive: In the $100 to $200 range, you’ll find foldable and reclining models in high-quality hardwoods and polywood. These chairs can withstand tough weather conditions. Premium: For over $200, you’ll find Adirondack gliders, swings, sets of two or more chairs with a table, and other variations on this backyard favorite.
Fit the backrest into place and secure it to the structure by using galvanized screws. Add glue to the joints and make sure everything is locked together properly. Attach a 2×2 support to the backrest and drill pocket holes at both ends. Insert 1 1/4″ screws into the armrest supports and leave no gaps between the components.

You are really going to enjoy using these this summer. We made templates of our Adirondack chair pattern pieces out of luan. Now when we make new ones, it’s easy to trace where to cut on the wood. Our first set, made years and years ago, finally rotted to the point that we had to throw them out, so making a new set is on our spring “to-do” list.

Thanks for sharing your excellent plans…….pity so many people complain about yiur plans a bit of common sense is all they need , and you have gone to so much trouble sharing your plans . Just about to start making as a winter project in our Covid Lockdown , hard to get Cedar in Ireland so using treated white deal and will paint later. Anyway, I love the template, much easier than all the complex measurements required. The only thing I would like is a set of step by step instructions, as there are some steps that are not obvious.
Well, that’s about it: A big, strong, and comfortable, ‘Cape Cod’, aka ‘Adirondack’, aka ‘Muskoka’ chair.
