The first assembly chore is joining the two sides with the front and lower rear crosspieces. The crosspieces overlap the sides and care should be taken that the ends are flush to the outside edges of the sides. This will help keep your chair square as you build.
Polywood Adirondack chairs are made up of high-density polyethylene material. They look like wood but they aren’t.

Care & MaintenanceThe Eucalyptus should be oiled with naturally refined linseed oil, or teak and hardwood oil 2-3 times per year to maintain the look and preserve the finish.

Overall...great plans! Just finished building my first. Couple tips for building not mentioned. Cut and sand your back slats to the inside of the lines so they don't wind up being slightly too wide to fit when fanned at the bottom. Also, when assembling the table portion...Join the table to the chairs in the middle first. THEN afterward cut your long runners that span across the chairs at the front and back to fit. Also be sure to keep parts E & D vertically parallel and equidistant at the top and the bottom so that your table top pieces will space evenly across. Very fun to build. Very comfortable. Thanks!
houseofnut: (and others that may build). It is not necessary to slavishly follow the construction methods detailed in the plan. Keep your dimensions accurate but at the critical seat to back and the seat to back leg joints you could use blind dowels (as I have), through dowels with shallow plugs, or a loose tenon, but preferably not just screws.

The upper rear crosspiece is attached below the chair arms. Use clamps to hold the piece in place as you position it correctly, that is, with a 201⁄2” distance between the inside edges at the backs of the arms. That might leave up to a 1⁄4” overhang of the arms at the outside edge. There should be sufficient space to secure the arms and crosspiece with two carriage bolts at each end. Use a spring clamp to hold the parts in place while drilling the 1⁄4” holes for the bolts. When done, install the four bolts.
