    Default Adirondak Chair Project

    My son and I built 3 Adirondak Chairs for a friend's cabin in Colorado. The wood is White Oak. "Splats", seat boards and arms are all 4/4 lumber ( some slightly planed to remove rough patches) . Back legs are 6/4 to make it very stable. IMG_9134.JPG

    Here is a shot of one of the assembled chairs before we put in the buttons over the screws and finished them to the same color as the body of the chair

    Of course, we had to make a prototype! (Which will, with its twin, reside at OUR house!)

    Nicely done!! I wish I had more time to do "fun" projects. All I've been doing for the last 3 years is cabinet job after cabinet job. It's good money but not really worth show and tell....

    Don- It has been a while- but I have seen some of your posts! You have done a LOT with the 'bot. Thanks for the kind words! I hope you are salting away some of that revenue and that you will be rosy on the other side of the current state of affairs!

    Looks great. What parts did you make on your CNC machine?

    Phil We made ALL parts on the CNC. We did easing of edges with a 3/16 round over, by hand. All cut out, all pre-bore for buttons to cover the screws, the V-carve on splats and front kick plate, we all done on ShopBot. We got 1" x 12" x 16' white oak for the 4/4 material. And lopped them to 103" to do half the parts and then did it in two segments... I have 120" available, so it was easy for us. And having them all CNC'd made it SO nice to assemble....

    We did hundreds over quite a few years as school shop projects. It was the most popular project. This was all done in the pre CNC era. Glad to hear it is working out for you on the Shopbot.
